> DESCRIPTION

ROSENBAUM CONTEMPORARY IS PROUD TO PRESENT CHANDELIERS, a fresh and vibrant collection of works by Chicago artist Lorraine Peltz.  Peltz, who holds an MFA from the University of Chicago is currently an adjunct professor at the Art Institute of Chicago.

 

This series of paintings shamelessly embraces the elegance, beauty and grace of the traditional form of the chandelier.  However, the artist elevates this concept to another level.  A student of Color Field icons such as Hans Hofmann, Peltz is not shy about vivid use of color. Sweeping planes of strong color make bold statements and afford a dramatic backdrop to her ethereal floating chandeliers. The form of the chandelier also embodies personal narrative for Peltz that harkens back to memories of her childhood and her Mother’s Austro-Hungarian heritage. The chandelier also serves as a metaphor that suggest the celebration of important events in one’s life. Petlz’ chandeliers float regally in undefined space affording the viewer the simple celebration of color, and light.
