Exhibit: “Ellen Emmet Rand Ellen Emmet Rand” at Figureworks
JANUARY 13, 2012 – MARCH 4, 2012
RECEPTION: JANUARY 13th from 6-9PM
Figureworks is pleased to welcome 2012 with a two-person exhibition by Ellen Emmet Rand and Ellen Emmet Rand, grandmother and granddaughter. The work in this show will combine Ellen Emmet Rand’s portrait paintings and drawings from the turn of the century with Ellen Emmet Rand’s new abstract collage paintings, which have been inspired from and created directly over a series of her earlier figurative paintings done in the 1990’s. Though these women have created quite different works in technique and subject, there is a remarkable similarity in palette, use of light, and a unified sensitivity to composition. These women, having come from very different generations, paths and circumstances, manage to share a unique bond of creativity and perspective.
