> DESCRIPTION

The East Gallery presents Rashell George’s second solo-exhibition, Downpour, featuring two new series of works by the artist. Using landscapes as a central theme, George strips the genre down to its most bare elements. The Framing Foliage series consists of found landscape imagery from books, magazines, brochures, etc., that George has painted over leaving only its foliage, creating a photographic frame around a solid colored painted background. In the Downpour series George applies horizontal washes of paint that drip down from the top to the base of the canvas, building an atmospheric haze that fabricates the illusion of space and depth.

 

Rashell George received her BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Painting and Drawing. She was the recipient of the Friends of Joe Mugnaini Award in 2004.
