Preview of paintings from the exhibition Lauren Luloff: Dark Interiors & Bright Landscapes at Halsey McKay, East Hampton, on view from June 1 – 19, 2012.
"Richly layered, complex activity propels the construction of these works as the artist layers bleach-stained bed sheets, muslin, transparent fabric and varying viscosities of oil paint. Luloff's paintings are constructed, layered and torn, coalescing into moody evocations of color, time and place. Visually at ease in the dialogue of Abstract Expressionist predecessors, her works are steeped in an accumulation of personal memories and images. The application of her ordinarily domesticated materials and approaches add boldly feminine strokes to the lineage."
