LAURA FAYER - Treasure
May 4, 2012 through June 2, 2012
Opening reception Friday May 4, 6:00 - 8:00PM
Thomas Robertello Gallery is pleased to present Treasure; an exhibition of new abstract paintings by New York-based artist Laura Fayer, May 4 through June 2, 2012. This is Fayer’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. There will be a reception Friday May 4, 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
Further developing her process of using handcrafted tools, stamps, and stencils to create minimalist-leaning abstract paintings, Fayer explores landscape more overtly in her current body of work. Her paintings draw on various structures and systems to produce a loose geometry with organic rhythms. Referencing architecture, aerial views of the landscape, and weather patterns, she also draws on memories of childhood years in Japan to create accumulations of deliberate yet gestural forms and systems. The layering of these marks vary in opacity, and undulate as systems within systems.
Laura Fayer received an MFA from Hunter College in 2006 and a BA from Harvard University in Visual and Environmental Studies. Her work has been exhibited recently in New York, Denver, Boston, and Washington, DC. She attended artist residencies at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Yaddo, and MacDowell Colony, and received a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant.
