ADD:                      Child’s work includes tenderly and realistically painted collages in
which images from contemporary culture and his own inner
consciousness are combined in ways that juxtapose disparate
elements that allude to the fundamental themes of transformation,
growth, death and the rhythms of human nature.  These paintings
are bright, carefully composed oil paintings on panel, and they are
based on gardens, intense, contemplative and lyrical.  During the
wine and cheese reception, Child will discuss his work and answer questions, beginning around 2 p.m.
