Opening Reception: Wednesday, March 12, 5:30 - 7:30 PM


Andrea Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition featuring new work by Jamie Brunson and Barbara Kronlins opening Wednesday, March 12, 2014.


“For me, the success of my paintings relies on their capacity to evoke analogous sensations of expansion and connection in the people who see them.” --Jamie Brunson


Jamie Brunson works with a mix of oil paint, alkyd medium and refined beeswax to build up layered, shimmering surfaces that extend beyond the canvas. Brunson uses veil and lattice forms to evoke meditative experiences and employs the physical qualities of paint to mimic the kind of perceptual sensory phenomena that arise in meditation—blurring, overlapping, dissolving edges, and radiance. Brunson received her BFA from the California College of the Arts and her MFA from Mills College.


“I was delighted with the images, colors, stories and memories they brought back.  Who didn’t love ‘Archie,’ ‘Blondie,’ and ‘Felix the Cat.’” --Barbara Kronlins

Barbara Kronlins has always used vintage matchbooks, coloring books, and other vintage ephemera to create her graphic, multi-layered collages.  However, after receiving a box of old comics found in the attic of her childhood home, Kronlins began incorporating these past and familiar images into her collages.  The new materials recalled old memories, including a past interest in Pop Art, which pushed her to work with new shapes and sizes.
