DESCRIPTION

The Nancy Margolis Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Lucy Fradkin’s second solo exhibition titled “Home Is Where The Heart Is,” March 1 through April 7, 2012. The artist reception is Thursday, March 1, 6 to 8pm.

Lucy Fradkin explores color, pattern, and diversity in her luminous acrylic gouache portraits. Lush, rich colors, intricate ornamentation, collage, and pencil blend together characteristically in her paintings. Contemporary, yet stylistically naive, she takes influence from folk, Indian and Persian miniature painting. Approaching perspective similarly, the largest to the smallest images layered front to back, Fradkin arrived at her style intuitively. Quiet and inactive, her figures stand in well-crafted surroundings often with collaged elements from old catalogs, field guides and vintage books. In Fradkin’s domestic interiors the intimate settings convey and depict stories of daily lives.

Self taught, Fradkin has shown in galleries in the United States, and countries abroad including Italy, China, Japan. She is a 2011 recipient of the prestigious Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Space Grant and the 2009 Pollock-Krasner Grant. Fradkin’s teaching appointments include Art Students League, New York, NY, Anderson Ranch, Aspen, CO.
