The Loft Artists Gallery Presents
“Off The Wall”
Solo Exhibition of paintings and drawings by Princess Cureton
March 24 - April 30, 2017
Opening Reception, Friday March 24, 6-8 PM
The Loft Artists Association proudly presents a farewell exhibition by artist Princess Cureton that combine the technique of painting and relief sculpting on canvas and paper that lift the figure from the surface and “Off The Wall”. Cureton will be leaving the LAA this summer and relocating to her new home in North Carolina.
The exhibition is based on metaphors that reflect the very personal and spiritual landscape of the artist’s experiences and is narrated through the figure in surreal background. Her technique of combining acrylic mixed media painting and relief sculpting on the canvas adds an element of surprise, designed to draw the viewer deeper into the artist’s narrative. Cureton uses a variety of processes to coax the figure away from the surface of the canvas, embedding glass, beads, fabric, plastic, sand and material indigenous to the environment in which she is creating. Her work is an autobiography reflecting the consonance and dissonance in life which she shares openly and honestly in resonance with the viewer.” More about the artist can be found at www.princesscureton.com and CT Post article.
In the Phillips Gallery at LAA, an exhibition entitled ‘Mix of Six” will be displayed simultaneously featuring the works of member artists Anne Salthouse, Maura Shapiro, Phyllis Sinrich, Jody Silver, Julliette Tehrani and Margaret Tsirantonakis.
