DRESCHER EXHIBIT

Diane Drescher, a member of the Bowery gallery since 2009, is currently exhibiting her paintings at St Francis Cabrini Shrine in Northern Manhattan.

Nature is vital to Drescher’s work, which straddles the line between representation and abstraction. Austere and direct in composition, her paintings rely on the expressive power of strong color and vigorous brush work.

Gael Mooney,  artist and  writer,  made these remarks about Drescher’s work  during her solo show at the Bowery Gallery  in November, 2015:    “In contrast with constant ebb and flow of urban life in Leon Kossoff’s work, Diane Drescher’s paintings of Manhattan portray quiet corners of contemplation at a seeming remove from the hustle and bustle of daily life”.

TREES AND SHADOW(1)

Mooney continues, “Diane’s paintings are studies in nuance.  Their delicate colors and well considered compositions —  attuned to the intervals and negative spaces between the buildings, trees and sky — make us slow down and listen to the inner silence present even in our urban landscape.

VIEW IN  THE GARDEN

…Diane’s paintings remind us of our capacity for contemplation wherever we find ourselves.  In so doing, they reveal art’s potential to bring hope and consolation to a world fraught by stress, violence and despair.”

The paintings on view at the St Francis Cabrini Shrine were inspired by the gardens and  grounds at the shrine and nearby Fort Tryon park.  They  were all painted on site.
