Exhibition Dates: May 14–June 4, 2016
Modern Eden Gallery
is pleased to announce Escape
, Lacey Bryant’s third solo exhibition at the gallery. This ambitious new body of work includes paintings done in anticipation of, and during an artist’s residency at Chalk Hill in Healdsburg, CA, where Lacey escapes from her downtown San Jose studio into the Sonoma outdoors to work en plein aire. These new works reflect on the desire to run away and the search for freedom. They engender feelings of nostalgic recollection, and recreate episodes of memory, where silent country landscapes beckon our Escape
Lacey Bryant lives in the SF bay area where she paints almost every day. Her expressive oil paintings capture haunting narratives between her subjects. Characters inhabit a realm of strange, nostalgic sweetness with undercurrents of darkness and mystery. When Lacey isn’t painting, she likes to go hiking, knit, play with her cat, Hecubus and eat cupcakes.
The exhibition will be on display through June 4, 2016 and is free and open to the public.
