About the Event
Gaia Contemporary on Canyon Road is delighted to announce the opening of ODYSSEY an exhibition of new works by Liz Barber. The show opens with an artist reception on September 2nd, from 5 to 7 pm and remains on display through the end of the month, closing on September 30th, 2022.
Emblematic of Barber’s paintings are the organic layered forms and textural variations visible in the painting’s surface. For the most part, Barber’s poured paint process is spontaneous, following incidental reactions which occur when mediums meet. Graphite and oil pastel mark making is visible among the organic shapes whose color palettes are inspired by the seasonal changes.
“There is always abstraction in my paintings no matter what the subject matter is. Nature provides organic, compelling shapes. Usually, drawing is the starting point consisting of ambiguous elements that add depth to the painting.”
- Liz Barber
