Gallery 427 Presents “Reflections” – Paintings by Mary Solberg.

Bold, iconic, contemporary work influenced by religious imagery, the masters, vintage post cards and circus sideshow banners. Solberg incorporates aspects of religious iconography, classical realism and her own unique style to create the large scale paintings she refers to as “Everyday Icons”. These Icon portraits focus on a single character to capture moments of triumph, transition, enlightenment and serenity. Dogs leap for balls, squirrels clutch their prize candy corn and swimmers savor from the water, each in their own way achieving transcendence. Traditional portraiture takes on an ethereal interpretation with the incorporation of gold leaf and various other media including plaster, oil, acrylics, beeswax, metal leaf, layers of varnish, gems and glitter. Her signature technique produces a highly textured masterful portrait with surprising depth and luminescence.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 24, from 7pm to 10pm.
Gallery open Saturday, March 31, from noon to 4pm.
Thursday, April 5, from 6pm to 9pm.
Saturday, April 7, from noon to 4pm.
