Not to worry, Justin Vining fans. There are plenty of paintings here that conform to his signature style. Take the mixed media on paper "Wyeth," which takes its inspiration from an Andrew Wyeth painting but goes off on its own in a wildly colorful direction. The hills seem to undulate to a musical rhythm and the farmland in the foreground looks like a patchwork quilt.
His newest paintings, however, aren't only more subdued — a number of them are basically in grayscale. And as for the thematic content, well, let's just say he's headed into grayer territory there as well. In the oppressive "Fading Slowly," we find a rural farmhouse bathed in blinding sunlight with the night rushing in from all four corners.
