Stanek Gallery and curator John Seed 

bring together sixteen international contemporary painters

who have taken disruption to a high level of expressiveness.

“In the past few decades, realism in painting has made a comeback. As traditional skills return, a number of artists in the U.S. and Europe have been inspired to challenge the rigor of their realist practice by disrupting their imagery.  This exhibition will be the first time that disruption is set apart from other trends in modern art and framed as a distinctive movement that deserves further examination."      -- John Seed
