Cindy Lisica Gallery presents Jamie Earnest: Your Home or Mine? opening reception
For her Houston debut, Jamie Earnest asks a seductive question: Your Home or Mine?...
The idea of “home” indicates a sense of place and possession of space, whether tangible or metaphoric. Earnest dances on this line, using bold color, juxtaposition of textures, and provocative compositions of large-scale mixed-media oil paintings. Her work evokes memory and philosophy, while referencing Pop and Postmodern styles. Earnest has a notable and extraordinary ability to execute dream-like interiors on both large and small scale, incorporating domestic and industrial materials on the canvas. The vibrant paintings have a unique material and textural quality. They investigate and imagine domestic spaces, architecture, and spatial experiences by depicting the physical world, as well as the interiors of the mind and the subconscious. Earnest’s magnificent paintings recall personal memories and the thoughtful imaginings of stories of friends and lovers.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 9.
