Peace in Abstraction showcases abstract paintings by Subodh Ghimire. “I paint when I get vibrations in my mind and release them onto blank canvases,” says artist Subodh Ghimire of his acrylic works on canvas. His work is inspired by the uniqueness of nature, by history, philosophy and science, and by his interactions with distinguished archaeologists and historians. Over the past decade, Mr. Ghimire has exhibited his work at exhibitions primarily in France and Nepal. His work was awarded Best in Show at a 2016 art exhibition of 125 artists from Europe and Nepal organized by the Lion’s Club of Paris, France.

Also featured along with new works by Gallery members is oil painter Jessica Mickey who specializes in hyper-realism. Her subjects glow with warmth and vibrancy that is better captured with paint than the original photographs she often works from. Among these paintings are memorial works for a young man whose lost life, says the artist, was both beautiful and tragic; a new series of “Manny” paintings highlights some of his best/worst moments.

Gallery Underground is located at 2100 Crystal Dr., Arlington, VA. For more information, visit www.galleryunderground.org.
