paintings by liz
December 7, 2013 - January 4, 2014
Opening reception December 7, 7-10pm
sophiajacob is pleased to present paintings by Liz Durette. For this exhibition, Liz was asked to create a body of work that utilizes oil painting as a vessel for creative liberation. In preparation, the artist was relieved from many of the logistical constraints and determinations normally associated with realizing a solo exhibition. Within this framework, the artist has been guided by genuine curiosity and personal investigation. With a quick and forthright approach, Liz exploits a medium that is both conventional and boundless.
Liz Durette lives in Baltimore, MD. A collection of her improvised musical recordings will be released on Ehse Records in 2014.
Please be sure to join our neighbor, Devil, for their inaugural show with work by Marisa Takal, entitled Z-1.
