T.L. Solien: Toward the Setting Sun

September 16, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby-Dick, or The Whale, tells of Captain Ahab’s self-destructive obsession with the pursuit of a phantom creature. Since 2004, American artist T. L. Solien has been at work on a new series of mixed media work that extends the reach of Melville’s classic, transferring its themes into a meditation on American restles-sness and on the major American historical narrative of the settling of the American West. Organized and circulated by Plains Art Museum, Fargo, North Dakota, and accompanied by a major catalogue, this is the first full exhibition of Solien’s work developed over the past 10 years.
