Christie Lau & Caroline Wright’s inaugural show,“Deception”, will be presented at Navillus Gallery’s Yorkville location from October 11 to December 2nd, 2012. The work addresses the intertwined themes of the natural world and deceit.
Lau’s whimsical artworks draw parallels between survival in a frentic urban society and the natural world. Using a range of techniques – from meticulous Old Master drawings to woodblock printing and laser-etched stamps, Lau creates work that is both beautiful and conceptual.
Caroline Wright renders landscapes – real and imagined– on an epic scale. Dangling somewhere between the realm of abstraction and direct representation, Wright’s blossoms of color create an world all her own. Elegant in design, rich in texture and poetic in purpose, Wright’s paintings sparkle with imagination.
