NEW YORK.- In her first solo exhibition in New York City in 8 years, Barbara Kolo will present "Paintings of Color and Light". Dots and drips of paint with sophisticated color patterns embody qualities of the natural world and the abstract. All the works are hand painted, labor intensive and deeply personal.
In "Paintings of Color and Light", Barbara Kolo uses elements of pointillism, repetition and abstraction; melding them seamlessly through a balance of logic and intuition creating a unique vision. Her color patterns attractively draw the viewer into each canvas's private world. Present in each is a connection to nature and/or landscape.
Barbara Kolo's work has shown on both coasts of the United States, in France and Italy. Most recently, she has shown her work in-group exhibitions at the Topanga Canyon Gallery, TAG, Off Rose Gallery and in the Brewery Fall Artwalk. All are in the Los Angeles area.
The exhibition will be on view April 17th to May 6th at Kanvas 219 Ninth Avenue Between 23rd and 24th Streets, New York, NY 10011. For more information see www.kanvasnyc.com. There will be a reception for the artist on Wednesday, April 18th 6-9PM.
