Brian Duff: 'Home, Spot, Figures' 

Brian Duff is not afraid to embrace a wide variety of genres and subjects in his recent oil paintings - from still life to nudes to landscapes. While his personal life is temporarily unsettled - he's living in an urban shelter - he takes particular comfort in painting the rural Indiana landscape. In "Indiana Moon Garden," the most striking of these landscape paintings, you see a garden with blue, green and yellow plants in front of a rickety fence and a house with a roof that has subsided substantially in the center, like a worn saddle. Overhead you see a full moon casting its weird radiance in an icy-blue sky. Duff's figure paintings such as "Blue Ridiculous" (which showcases a pensive woman in a swimsuit) are as impressionistic as his landscapes. He takes a surreal turn in "Soul Hermaphroditca," where an upright nude sprouts a tree between her legs. If you turn this painting on its side an entire landscape - and a new way of seeing the world - emerges. Through March 27; 317-356-3776,
