This Stunning Artwork Will Make You Rethink Nature and Its Role in Our Lives

This Saturday beginning at 5:00 p.m., Laura Rathe Fine Art Gallery will present the opening reception for Changing Tides, a two-person exhibition featuring new works by Christy Lee Rogers and Dylan Gebbia-Richards. The undulating forms, prismatic pigments and glimmering light used in Rogers’ and Gebbia-Richards’ work captivate the senses and remind the viewer how the forces of nature shape our world. Needless to say, this is one exhibition that will completely enchant the mind!

Though one might think an artist has full control over the creation of their art, Rogers and Gebbia-Richards let natural phenomena have the last say. The result are breathtaking works that you have to see to believe.

Rogers’ photographs are inspired by masterpieces from the Baroque era, but rather than relying on a steady hand and control of a brush, she builds these scenes through the unexpected movements of submerged models, vintage drapery, and the refraction of light through water – as if they themselves are “painting” the scene. Her remarkable eye then catches these celestial moments of beauty and vulnerability through the lens.

Gebbia-Richards’ topographic paintings are a symphony of rich tones and densely layered texture. Through an intricate process of dripping wax, pigment and resin, he allows chance and gravity to define the direction of his work. By doing this, Gebbia-Richards seemingly charts undiscovered terrain that is reminiscent of mountainous ranges or vibrant coral reefs.

The opening reception for Changing Tides is free. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through February 9 at Laura Rathe Fine Art.
