Paul Davies | Christina Shurts | Andre Yi
February 27 – April 3, 2010
Opening Reception, Saturday, February 27th, 6 – 10pm
Lawrence Asher Gallery examines structure through the eyes and compositions of three distinctive painters. Paul Davies balances exquisite modern architecture in abstracted, painterly environs utilizing contemporary art-making techniques. Christina Shurts' loose and free application of paint reduces concerns with engineering principles of her super-structures. Dream states and imperfect memories serve as the catalyst of her creations. Andre Yi continues his masterly renderings of landscape and structure from a more focused, natural perspective. These paintings, inspired by his own photographs of National forests and parks, effectively examine man's complex relationship with the natural world.
