GBGLA is pleased to present “Christine Rasmussen: Liminal Transcendence,” the gallery’s first solo exhibition of paintings by the Los Angeles-based artist. Rasmussen’s oil paintings are an exploration of in between spaces; she coaxes an unexpected beauty from the industrial spaces and urban byways at the center of her work. An opening reception was held on November 19, 2022. The exhibition will remain on view through December 31, 2022.
In this series, Rasmussen posits the simple idea that we can find moments of transcendence in ordinary places. Each painting depicts a view from a parking lot. These transitional spaces are neither here nor there, rarely one’s starting point or destination, and are an experience many people have in common. City skylines and industrial canyons become the spaces in which Rasmussen invites the viewer to search for those moments of wonder. Transcendence can be found in the angle of a shadow on a concrete wall, the intersection of two rooflines, the texture of corrugated metal.
On view: November 19 – December 31, 2022
