The 48 large acrylic paintings and 150 collages encompass postmodern concepts with old master techniques and structures.

Throughout his 65-year career as an artist and professor, Arnold Mesches has woven many narratives into lush and virtuosic paintings.

Beginning in late-1989 and until mid-1996 Mesches created the ANOMIE series, paintings and collages that included overt and subtle references to the overlapping histories and multi-cultural aspects of life.
