Beyond the Bounds of Reality – Abstraction

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.
