Ingrid’s work at her upcoming show in Vail will mostly feature her newest abstract work. It may seem like a departure, but it is actually the work within the work that is being exposed. Each layered piece begins with an abstract painting; the figurative construction grows from that point outwards.
Recently, she set one of the abstract works aside and carefully considered it, lived with it. It was too good to hide, so she decided to keep it that way and start again with another background. Before long, Ingrid had several abstract works. Though they are very different from the layered works, they are also very similar in mood and composition. Complex and hauntingly beautiful, they are a natural expression to her artistic style.
The exhibition in Vail will present her newest works, both abstract and transparent layers. To see them together is a rare opportunity and a fascinating look inside the artistic process. It is well worth a visit. The exhibition opens this Thursday, December 29th at Galerie Zuger, Vail. Ingrid will be at the drop-in reception from 11 – 7. Stop by if you are in the area, and Happy New Year.

Thank you everyone for making last Saturday’s reception (August 3rd) an amazing success. We didn’t get an accurate count, but close to two hundred collectors and fans came through to see Ingrid’s newest work. It is truly an honor to have so many appreciate and enjoy her work. Ingrid is so grateful for all the support and enthusiasm. A very special thank you to Ania and Gunther of the Forre Fine Art Gallery for hosting Ingrid’s work and of course to Jeff and Laurent for your dedication. It was an evening we will long remember. And luckily we had two very talented photographers to document the event, our children, Isabella and Teagan.
