Solo Show: A Sense of Place: Transformative Architectural Landscapes
Centuries old architecture and picturesque villages depicted in rich layers of mixed media combine in Yurdin’s new collection of work. Inspired by journeys to Italy, Spain and France, these paintings represent elements of so many glorious spaces and don't pretend to imitate the actual places, but rather suggest a sense of place. The passage of time finds a visual voice in the detailed charcoal work that creates structure for the layering of paint, oil pastel and collage.
Movements in Color
Movement and colors continue to define Thierry's work but the few paintings shown here are diverse and suggest different possible directions it could take in the future. Much of the show is in the 24 by 48 inches format.
Structures: New Paintings and Drawings
Painting from her Dupont Circle studio, the artist looks over a scene which is manmade and orderly, yet action everywhere. The city is alive and breathing. In this work Carol Rubin reflects on the nature of the city in which we diligently build fortification as respite from chaotic but life affirming change.
