This is Caleb Considine’s third solo exhibition at Bureau. Considine works from life, focusing increasingly on cityscapes and objects set up in his studio. In the five paintings and two drawings in this show, aspects of still life and landscape merge. Equally distributed attention to detail sits nestled within an outward facing formal orientation toward the paintings as objects.
