Ameringer/McEnery/Yohe (New York) showed this piece, Dominion, by Bo Bartlett at Expo Chicago 2016. It is a remarkable piece.
It flirts with hyper-realism but when you look at the iceberg or the sea it doesn't seem quite so realistic as surrealistic. It reminds of a claymation film or a dream. Then there is the bear. It has an almost human look on its face, a look of supernatural seeming defiance.
Bartlett was educated at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. You can find out more at www.bobartlett.com.
