In Pathways, Azita Ghafouri presents a visual grid that symbolizes a memoir of 65 cities that she has traveled to. Having worked as an architect and urban planner for several decades, Ghafouri has traveled extensively. The places that she visited left strong impressions on the artist. Each section of the grid represents the artist’s visual interpretation of her time in the different places.
In Pathways, Eveline Luppi presents recent paintings for her first exhibition at Carter Burden Gallery. Using repetition, patterns, and a limited palette, Luppi blends white with the selected colors to reveal a subtle gradation of color from light to dark. Luppi’s minimalist approach, coupled with architectural and geometric abstraction, result in paintings that evoke a calm, Zen-like feeling in the viewer. Luppi’s body of work evolved from reflecting on visits to dunes and beaches of Provincetown and the National Seashore. They are reminiscent of the subtle repetitive patterns and markings she observed in the white sands while walking the seaside and of peaceful, meditative times spent on the beaches. The artist describes her recent work as autobiographical and as a journey of self-discovery.
