DESCRIPTION

MARIETTA PATRICIA LEIS:  EARTHLY PLEASURES

Monday March 11 – April 5, 2013

Opening Reception:  Thursday, March 14th – 5pm to 8pm

         

Earthly Pleasures, a solo exhibition of paintings by Marietta Patricia Leis will be hosted by Seton Hall University’s Walsh Gallery.  Curated by Jeanne Brasile, the exhibition features Leis’ oil paintings which are lushly rendered abstractions inspired by her extensive travels and love of nature.  The paintings are, in part, evocative of landscapes, seascapes, plant forms, weather patterns or micro-organisms and can be concomitantly seen as many of these phenomena.  Nuances of color and light palpably depict a range of imagery that encapsulates a life of experience, serving as complex memory portraits that tap into emotions and feelings, both past and present.
