Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
An exhibition of new paintings by the artist Elizabeth Peyton is now on view at Gladstone’s 64th street location through January 20, 2021. Entitled “Lara,” the showcase of small-scale works hang throughout the space and above its picturesque mantles, filling the gallery with a selection of the artist’s signature-style portraits and other works.
Made with a muted rainbow of colors, the works on view include a series of oil on linen paintings like the 17 x 14 inches Lara, Garden, Autumn, which depicts a brunette woman surrounded by greenery and vines. A face composed of brush strokes reminiscent of those made by watercolors, entitled Reflection, E.P. is accompanied by scenes like a dog curled up cozily, called Felix Starlight, and a summery still life entitled Sunflower and Egypt Book.
With some paintings framed and others hung directly on the wall, the exhibition offers a serene moment to explore the artist’s universe, giving the feeling of closeness and intimacy.
