This event has ended.

Denise Bibro Fine Art presents Summer Selections, a show featuring nine artists working in diverse concepts and media.

Lindsey Adams Adelman works with human hair to create elegant and precise drawings which range from horizontal or vertical striations to repetitive kaleidoscopic designs. Also embracing a minimalist aesthetic, sculptor Myung-Ock Lim’s sharp-edged glass wedges are comprised of individual laser-cut sections of glass assembled to create a striated prism. Featuring pastel-colored abstract shapes painted on the reverse side of frosted glass in a hard-edged vein, Giorgio Brogi’s work has a seductive surface and conjures precious bits of candy.

Working in a figurative mode, Dusty Boynton’s energetic canvases depict a motley cast of characters—human, animal and in between—painted with confident, gestural strokes in radiant color. The work is at once joyful and psychologically charged. Also involved in a narrative of imagined characters, Mark Hadjipateras’ drawings and paintings explore science fiction themes: otherworldly landscapes, robots, and fanciful vehicles.

Derived from satellite imagery, Roy Kinzer’s aerial landscape paintings encompass digital manipulation and collaged maps. What at first appears as abstraction, reveals the tops of buildings, roads, topographical contour lines, rivers, and lakes.

Inspired by nature and spirituality, Sara Crisp creates mandala-like patterns surrounding the central focal point of each piece, which are actual objects such as butterflies, seedpods and bones, enveloped in encaustic. Using similar subjects, Iona Fromboluti’s evocative still lifes hint at the macabre; populated by skeletons, desiccated flowers, and bugs. In a different incarnation of the still life, Lisa Dinhofer, a consummate draftsman, creates paintings and color pencil drawings celebrating the complexity of the objects she depicts: marbles, glass animals, insects, creating intricate compositions which become a world of their own.
