February 9–April 30, 2021
New York painter Francie Lyshak draws on her own lived experience—including the trauma of childhood abuse—to conjure hauntingly allusive scenes with something of the quality of modern myths. Aiming to transcend the purely rational by establishing spaces for dreaming and reflection, emotional exploration and release for the viewer, she also maintains her own indelible perspective, subtly advancing a feminist outlook and pursuing a foundational belief in the continuing power of image, color, and text.
Exhibition organized through Katharine T. Carter & Associates.
