Diane Drescher blogs about Linda Carey: Recent Paintings: Italy in Mind at Bowery Gallery, New York, on view through July 9, 2016.

Drescher writes: "Carey says the reproduction quality of the photograph (of the work of art), cast shadows, overlapping objects, and the painter’s ever-changing perceptions modify the images and put them in a context that feels very present. She is interested in reconciling conflicting forces: dimensionality and flatness, accuracy and artifice, past and present. To this writer the paintings have achieved a beautiful harmony and remind one of devotional panels."
