Lynette Lombard -The Air We Breathe

Dates: March 1-26, 2022

Reception: Thursday, March 3, from 5-8pm

The Bowery Gallery is pleased to present new paintings by Lynette Lombard.

In reflecting on her recent work, Lombard explains: “As a perceptual painter, I have found my recent inspiration in two places: the midwestern townscape I saw from my studio window during lockdown and the third-oldest restored prairie, Green Oaks, twenty minutes from my home. These scenes have sustained me through the pandemic”.

She further explains: “At Green Oaks, I found release from the daily terrors of Covid, environmental and civil rights injustices, and experiences of loss during 2020-22; the range of life forms animated my work. At home, I painted the color relationships between the clouds and the buildings, at once drastic and precise. In search of the air all living things breathe, I become consumed by intervals, spatial fluxes, slipping forms and sky, but also by the tremendous complexity in the way nature is organized”.
