Gina Rorai, The Path of Appearance. The works of Gina Rorai are hybrids combining aspects of still life, abstract, and landscape painting. She believes in the totality of painting and sees the emotional connection of the painting to the viewer as the critical element. In the still life paintings Rorai uses her own collection of objects and fabrics. She combines interior still life and outdoor landscapes on the same plane, making the final painting ambiguous ... The opening Wed 3 Sep, 5-8pm, will feature a conversation with the artist and Meraj Dhir, art & film scholar, Harvard University.

He hungers to unite extremes: precision and free improvisation, the intensely graphic and the beautifully painted, exquisite refinement of detail and pictorial force. The sense of liquid movement of paint depicting spheres and ambiguous shapes are barely contained within the large canvasses in this exhibition. Peter G. Ray is represented by De Luca Fine Art | Gallery (www.delucafineart.com) ... more
