vision of a soft sun

9.30–11.5.2022

Leslie Barlow shares new oil paintings on panel and paper that explore a kind of freedom, play, and joy among and between (or in spite of) heaviness and chaos. An acknowledgement of friends and loved ones in this particular cosmic moment, the works become gentle markings of relationships and experiences that feel both familiar and radical. Barlow sees this work as a necessary renewal of the spirit, a reclaiming of space, leisure, and slow process when everything surrounding urges to speed up and return to some sense of “normal” that was never normal in the first place. 

Opening Reception:
Friday, September 30, 5 to 7 pm
