L’Éparpillage is Jonathan “feral opossum” Mayers’ first exhibition with the gallery. Recent, small- to medium-scale, vibrant paintings depict metaphorical beasts amid meticulously rendered Louisiana landscapes. The mysterious creatures – somewhat wicked, somewhat charming – were born of the artist’s familiarity with Louisiana folklore, and serve to illustrate his opinion pertaining to the reality we live in.

Over the years, they’ve reconnected to recreate these weekends and this exhibition is the latest installment. The wrong way home. objectifies experimentation and investigation while juxtaposing inertia with action.
