Lissa Hase and John Stillmunks: Paintings

Through Mar. 27 Lissa Hase and John Stillmunks: Paintings Dundee Gallery, 4916 Underwood Ave, lower level Tues.-Thurs. 11a.m.-7p.m.; Fri.-Sat. 11a.m.-9p.m.; Sun. 12p.m.-5p.m., FREE 402.505.8333, dundeegallery.com Multi-media artist Lissa Hase prides herself on transforming garbage scraps into richly colorful, textured images using oil paints. An act she calls therapeutic and exciting, University of Nebraska at Omaha Fine Arts graduate Hase says she begins each piece without a plan, creating intuitive, light and colorful “whimsical worlds.” John Stillmunks uses a similar improvisational process to produce his intense paintings of more familiar — yet wacky worlds, reflecting human experience. In a series he calls “Malcontents & Ne’er-Do-Wells,” one shows a black-eyed waiter hitting another waiter with a fish in a restaurant scene; a bright yellow sun struggles to smile in another. Stillmunks, originally of Omaha, lives and runs Thought Gallery in Des Moines. Hase resides in Boulder where she “paints in her sunroom overlooking the Flatirons.” The exhibit is on display through March 27.
