Laurie Lisonbee - Posture/Gesture
Artist Reception: Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7pm – 9pm
Enjoy refreshments and good conversation with other art enthusiasts while exploring Laurie Lisonbee's new exhibit, Show of Hands.
Paintings of the human figure are juxtaposed with found objects that are repurposed, constructed, and transformed into object-paintings. East meets west in gold-leafed surfaces surrounding meticulously painted human hands. Mudra-like, the hand gestures hint of vows, rituals, and meditations, revealing narrative and identity.
