Ryan James Fine Arts to showcase Milan Heger’s “Duality,” series

“Duality,” showcase will include a chance to meet the artist on April 18.

This month, Ryan James Fine Arts will feature artist Milan Heger at their newly opened Kirkland Urban venue.

Their gallery at 425 Urban Plaza will showcase Heger’s “Duality,” mixed media painting series, Ryan James said it will be Heger’s third showcase with their gallery.

James said Heger’s concept for the series was inspired by the duality of personality that people have within them and the way people wear different “faces,” to appear one way to some people and a different way to others.

The series uses deep shades of blue accented with primary red and yellow in conjunction with facial sketches and objects like wood, screws, metal and even a shoe in his compositions of “Duality,”.

According to James, Heger originates from Czechoslovakia, where he escaped an oppressive regime that held him as a political prisoner. He immigrated to Hawaii in the 90’s James said.

On Sunday April 18, from 12 to 4 pm, gallery visitors and potential art buyers will have the chance to meet Milan Heger and ask questions about his art as he leads a tour through the series.

James said people who want to meet and speak with Heger will have their chance to do so in a casual yet intimate setting at Kirkland Urban.
