Description

Amy Simon Fine Art is pleased to announce the March 8th opening of Out of Line: Janet Lage + Nancy Lasar, an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by these two accomplished artists whose use of drawing and line is critical to their art. The exhibit is on view from March 8th through April
18th.

Janet Lage, combines disciplined formal painting with the raw spontaneity of chance, outcome and intuition.  She approaches each piece understanding the physical image, but allowing internal forces of perception and chance to evolve. Her paintings are an adventure of experiment and intent woven together.  Viewers travel through alluring linear paths that create an exciting visual journey. Lage’s objective is to explore and emphasize the possibility of paint medium with gritty, tactile quality. She leaves traces of the process and text in each piece of art. This energizes the painted form. Her works are poetry on canvas. In the artist’s words, “my goal is to momentarily harness logic, instinct and guesswork.”

Nancy Lasar utilizes a variety of lines and marks in her work. Whether drawing, painting or printmaking, the process is about layering and energizing the space so that objects are fluid, interconnected and full of energy and movement. She employs a variety of lines, marks and media suggesting both stasis and openness to possibility and transformation, as well as time passing. The works reflect the multiple realities which intermingle memory, imagination and daily life. Images emerge and diverge, reconfiguring new relationships. Each of these artists work and live in Connecticut. However, both have significant reputations nationally and internationally. They have each exhibited in a wide range of museums and galleries. Their works are included in important corporate and museum collections. Out of

There is an opening reception, Saturday, March 8th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11:00am to 5:30pm.
