In this episode of our Classics series, we revisit Michael Cline’s 2007 solo show “Folks” at Daniel Reich Gallery in New York. Michael Cline’s works blend aspects of Surrealism with traditional realism. The paintings in this show are reminiscent of George Grosz and Pierre Klossowski.

Cline received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and BA from the University of North Florida.
