Opening Reception: Saturday, February 4 from 5pm to 8pm
Two accomplished painters joined the gallery as full members in 2016. This show features their recent work.
Hee Hyoun Chung’s new paintings are based on memories of a trip through Cuenca, Spain many years ago. “Walking away from the tourist attractions one day,” she remembers, “suddenly I came upon an alley of small, charming houses with colorful gardens. There was nothing grand to impress the passing traveler, but I felt a flash of joy at its unpretentious simple beauty.”
Brian Truesdale’s latest work combines densely painted surfaces with bold marks emphasizing the figurative elements of abstraction. “A nest of lines can convey anxiety or mystery,” he says, “while an intense stripe of color, frayed at the edges, can symbolize a leap into ecstasy or the abyss.”
