The debut shared-solo shows for two of the gallery’s newest members, this show features contrasting approaches to landscape abstraction: the muted, atmospheric work of Emily O’Reilly, and the bold geometric approach of Gabe Morton-Cook.
It started with a storm of life that turned into a therapeutic challenge and it became the fuel I needed to dream and breathe life into a dusty corner of my soul. Losing a loved one to cancer hits a depth within you that you never knew existed; but, I exchanged beauty for ashes in my painting.
I’ve been painting in only 3 colors : black, white and gold (iridescent bronze). The combination of what I’ve been able to create with such a limited palate astounds me. These colors, to me, represent beauty from ashes.– Emily O’Reilly
This collection features several paintings completed in the last year or two. All are tied together visually by a simple horizontal line, reminiscent of a distant view to a place where earth meets sky. As a collection, they may represent a series of such views experienced over time and place.– Gabe Morton-Cook
