Life and Still Life
November 18 & 19, 2017
A large solo exhibit by classical figurative and still life painter Linda Sosangelis, whose work is inspired by the Old Masters and 19th century academic narratives. Her enduring interest in detailed realism and 19th century Orientalism began as an art student. She bases her work on the return to those standards which demand the knowledge of composition, perspective, color, three-dimensional form, draftsmanship, and anatomy.
This is a sumptuous collection of paintings that delight the eye, describing the opulent beauty of textiles, fruit, flowers and pottery through color, pattern and detail. Her figures portray richness and splendor using atmospheric lighting, textural specificity and luminosity. Through these paintings, she transcribes the world into something slightly rarefied, a realm in which beauty and harmony reign supreme.
