Exhibition Description:

For his latest body of work, Funk continues his progressive abandonment of the narrative of realist portrait painting. As his subjects become further enshrouded in the contours of their synthetic overgarments, they become channels for the amorphous color fields, shadow and light interplay that is typical of Flemish and renaissance painting. Funk's practice, however, with its daedal focus on minutiae, creates in each hyper-real detail an abstracted element of a larger, extrinsic level of consciousness.
