Firmly situated in this nexus of the incredible and the banal are the paintings of Megan Bickel. Layers upon layers of paint, digital prints, cement, natural landscapes, pencil, cutting-edge textiles, photographic representations, and virtual reality experiments combine to produce a depth so extensive it begins to appear irremediably flat. It’s hard to escape the thought that with just a bit closer of a look, just a bit longer tracing the marks on the canvas, you’ll break through to the truth buried under the artifice. But that resolution is constantly interrupted.
