Laura Rathe Fine Art will host an exhibition of new works by contemporary painter, Christopher Martin, in a solo show, Focus. After 20 years of practicing his signature reverse painting technique utilizing luster acrylic surfaces, Martin has shifted to lightly honing the front surface of the acrylic after the painting is completed. In the honed works the darker areas develop a matte finish giving the color a velvety richness. This effect creates a dramatic contrast to the pearlescent radiance of the lighter iridescent paints.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 20.
