This exhibition is an eye-opener. It reminds us that the history of art only gets larger and more interesting
Roberta Smith, New York Times
Mullican is the best artist you never heard of.
Alex Baker, Curator of Contemporary Art, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts

For over 50 years, Los Angelesbased artist Lee Mullican (19191998) created paintings, drawings, and sculptures of great beauty and shamanistic power. The richness of his imagination, coupled with the breadth of his interests, resulted in an oeuvre that simultaneously engages the eye, mind, and heart. His works reflect a broad range of influences and references, including Native American art and culture, Surrealism, Zen Buddhism, and Hinduism. Throughout his career, Mullican addressed the apparent conflict between abstraction and figuration, the absorption of both Western and non-Western sources, and the relationship between form and contentin short, issues that are central to the art of the second half of the twentieth century.
Exhibition remains on view through July 15, 2006.
