Nature is Transformed in the Paintings of L. Byrne

Top Quote L Byrne is a contemporary artist for whom the environment is a big source of inspiration - the rich color of dirt, the petal of a flower, the hues of food or textiles, moss on old bricks. She generally produces a series in which she explores the potential of a single topic in many colors and textures. End Quote
  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 29, 2011 - Chelsea's Agora Gallery will feature L Byrne, in Infinite Color: L. Byrne / a Solo Exhibition. The exhibition is scheduled to run from October 7, 2011 through October 28, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, October 13, 2011).

    About the Artist
    On striking, large scale canvases, L Byrne creates vibrant abstract impressionist oil paintings, laden with color and brimming with movement and life. In her abstract interpretations of natural elements and landscapes, Byrne pays homage to color and texture, using broad sweeping brushstrokes and blending multitudes of bold colors to create remarkable and memorable patterns and forms. Here she takes her own thoughts and passions, and translates them into an emotive response that engages the viewer, who is thereby invited to recall his or her own personal encounters with the natural world. Byrne finds much of her inspiration in the Canadian wilderness of her youth. She explains, "A passion for color and inspiration, sparked by a lifelong fascination with nature, provides a creative power that finds freedom in texture and great spaces." For her, the brilliant color in her art is a celebration of the beauty of life and its ability to reach out to individuals with its unique energy and power.

    L Byrne currently splits her time between Boston and Miami.
