Layers and Light

Posted in In the Studio, Art Style Files by Danielle Draudt on 04th March 2015

LAYERS AND LIGHT

Layers and Light introduces three new artists to Rise Art.  The painted works of Kym Haverson, Luke Elwes, and Fernando Velazquez each depict abstracted landscapes, which share a textural surface quality while evoking disparate perspectives of the natural environment.  

Curator Rebecca Gordon walks you through these three artists whose work is thematicaclly connected through their use of layers and light.  

Be sure to join Rise Art at the gallery space (83 Great Titchfield Street, W1W 6RH) on March 4th at 18:30. RSVP here

Luke Elwes

Fernando Velazquez

His bold, ethereal canvases reject the boundaries between abstract and figurative art. They allude to reality through movement, energy and light but are driven purely by imagination. In 2014 he was a finalist for both The Evolver Prize and The Tribe Prize at Edgar Modern.
