This event has ended.

RARE Gallery presents a series of new paintings and works on paper by Christine Gray, a Richmond, Virginia-based artist, in "Closer and Closer," her solo debut in New York. Her works focus on the very human impulse to purse revelatory experiences via Nature. In order to conjure these extraordinary moments of communion, Gray crafts make-shift talismanic objects of almost prehistoric intensity and simplicity and then paints them into settings of gorgeous luminosity and otherworldliness. The objects and their settings concentrate humankind's desires and yearnings, transforming them into something transcendent.

The title of the exhibition, "Closer and Closer," underlines the persistence of Man's search for personal, meaningful interludes with the natural world. However, the very nature of this determination is weighed down with the intent to control or harness occurrences rather than allow them to come about naturally.
