Donna Moylan: Take Shelter

For Donna Moylan, the wild is the norm. At Tanja Gunert’s Hudson gallery, Moylan’s paintings point to a surrealist revival in recent art though she claims a long history in this genre. As a young artist living in Rome for 23 years she developed a signature style that incorporated abstract shapes and caricatures inhabiting otherworldly landscapes.

Stressed World is a show made of artworks that are largely handcrafted: painted, carved, drawn, cast, or assembled. They’re mostly intimate and human scale with some exceptions.
