Figuratively Speaking finishes off with a group of five Peter Illig paintings. Illig’s style refers to mid-twentieth century book-cover art and advertising, giving them a post-pop sensibility. Assembling various disparate images combined in the same piece, Illig’s work is allegorical, but the meanings are often obscure. These recent Illig paintings struck me as very different from his earlier work, yet thoroughly consistent with it.
