Laurie Simko will be showing her acrylic, oil, and mixed media exhibit "Lush Life" at the gallery January through February 2019.
Over the past decade I have produced a series of paintings exploring the richness of life in the streams, marshes, gardens and woods around me. The macro and micro views in nature allow for a diverse interpretation of its organic forms in their varying stages of growth. This exhibition reveals the continuation of this search for further understanding and a fresh, personal expression of the natural world. I work with oil on canvas or wood panel inquiring with reverence the interconnection we have with our environment, its offerings of chaos and order, flow and stillness, growth and decay, all elements intrinsic to our shared lush life.
