Fantastic brings together of the work of a dozen artists from the United States, Canada, England, Iceland, and Argentina who delve into the implausible, incredible, and improbable. It is as though the artists provide the viewer with the characters and the setting, but require that the viewer supply the narrative. Many works echo earlier paintings. Argentinean artist Rez borrows from Da Vinci and Velázquez. David Becker of Detroit seems steeped in Bosch and Bruegel. Grand Forks’ Brian Paulsen keeps company with Edward Hopper and Franz Kline.
