It is rare to find a perfect marriage between the absence of emotion in minimalism and the overwhelming intensity and artistic skill of realistic representation. Such are the works by Texas artist Page Piland whose enigmatic canvases require the viewer to take a second look in an attempt to understand how he fuses sculpture and painting in a two-dimensional art piece.

Piland choses to exalt the materials used such as old wooden planks, discarded construction materials and even burned wood, by insetting (or mortising) it into the canvas and painting a portrait of this simple element. His elegant works become an invitation to look closely at these materials derived from the environment and pay homage to old-world artisans. Full of surprise and remarkable skill, his mixed media pieces are ideal for lovers of hyperrealist-style painting and sculpture.

Page Piland grew up in an art environment in Austin, Texas. He studied under several of the so-called "Dallas Nine" including William Lester and Everett Spruce. His drawings, paintings and monotypes have been shown at Dallas Museum of Fine Art, Texas Fine Art Association Shows, Texas Art Celebration Shows, Blaffer Gallery-University of Houston exhibitions, the Hunting Art Prize and many other exhibitions and venues. Recently, we featured his works at the Texas Contemporary Art Fair of Houston. He lives and works in Houston.
