DESCRIPTION

Mercury 20 Gallery is pleased to announce True Paint, a group show with artists Eric Bohr, Maya Kabat, and Jill McLennan. This painting survey explores realism and abstraction in the landscape and still life genres.

In Maya Kabat's color-based abstract urban oil paintings, the artist builds shimmering landscapes using a range of scraping tools. Exhibiting a recent series of mixed media still lifes, painter Eric Bohr combines the genre with an edge of modernist abstraction. Jill McLennan's encaustic paintings depict graffiti details of Oakland and Vancouver, emphasizing doors and windows on the overlooked details of daily urban life.
