Kathryn Markel Fine Arts Presents Laura Fayer’s Dream Logic

Kathryn Markel  pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Laura Fayer. This marks the artist’s third solo exhibition with Kathryn Markel Fine Arts.

Laura Fayer’s mixed media paintings in “Dream Logic” evoke an ephemeral natural world, poised in a delicate balance between dynamism and tranquility, movement and harmony. She uses handmade stencils and stamps to print patterns and lines onto very thin Japanese paper. This is then applied to the canvas in layers and painted over with acrylic medium, which causes the paper to dissolve into transparency. Only the printed marks remain, interspersed with rich swathes of acrylic paint. Throughout this process, the surface of the canvas undergoes constant changes, hundreds of micro-decisions, revisions, additions, and overlays, resulting in world of constant movement and change, where printed images float and weave among the painted washes of color.
