DESCRIPTION

After major aesthetic renovations undertaken during the month of July, 111 Minna Gallery will reopen its doors with two elegant and uniquely complimentary art exhibitions featuring the multi-processed works of Ivy Jacobsen and Tobias Tovera while also incorporating the exquisite fashion of Abigail Glass and live musical performance by Tim Carr.

Ivy Jacobsen strives to create a place of magical realism in her landscapes, balancing magical elements with real world rendering of flora and fauna found in our natural world. She uses oil paint, bronzing powder, earth pigments, acrylic paint, resin, and other mixed media on canvas and birch panel in creating her paintings. They are composed of many thin layers of glazes slowly built up over time. Through the multiple semi-transparent layers all the colors are visible creating a glowing depth of field. By painting the trees and plant forms in between the layers of glazes the forms begin to occupy various spaces in the foreground and background, further creating the illusion of depth. It is Ivy’s hope that the viewer is invited “into” the painting to fully explore the imaginary environment.

In Last Light, the ethereal scenery in Ivy Jacobsen’s work carries with it a feminine sensibility that’s soothing to the eye and rarely seen in works displayed at 111 Minna Gallery.
