Bleicher/Golightly Gallery presents an exhibit of new works by Malibu painter Gay Summer Rick. Gay’s ‘Fog Series’ depicts beautiful local scenes in the presence of a growing fog.  While she has found beauty in the haze, Rick believes the increase in fog in Southern California is a symptom of climate change due to global-warming. This new fog threatens to mute the warm, vibrant colors that drew the painter to California from her native state of New York.  Luckily, Rick is masterful at revealing what lies beneath the surface of a scene. Painting with only a palette knife, she creates her landscapes as a series of interacting layers. Beyond the misty veil, her subjects hum with energy and movement,  presenting an empowering optimistic undertone against bleak possibilities.
