GBGLA is pleased to present two new exhibitions – “Ron Rizk: Of Structure and Place,” and “Audra Weaser: Open Waters.” The exhibitions will remain on view through June 18, 2022. Remember to check with the gallery for up-to-date covid protocols and guidelines – (proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required).
“Of Structure and Place,” Southern California painter Ron Rizk’s first solo show with the gallery. In this new series of oil paintings, Rizk explores personal histories through the structures that inhabit his memories.
Ron Rizk’s paintings depict the intimate personal history of locales from his life. Ethereal and yet grounded in reality, the paintings tell the stories of very real places as seen through the artist’s memories. Highly accurate in some aspects and imagined in others, the paintings exist in a space between reality and the surreal.
Also being celebrated on May 14, 2022 is the art of Audra Weaser in a new exhibition titled “Open Waters.”
“Reflecting upon open waters always gives me a sense of possibility. It evokes the essence of repose or serenity that comes when all your senses are present, united and in balance with the natural world. And with that comes a willingness to embrace the unknown.In this series of paintings, expansive bodies of water gently rippled with light are represented by large fields of iridescent color. These heightened colors often correspond to my own experiences—from swimming in the Pacific Ocean throughout my childhood to sailing and snorkeling in Hawaii and the Caribbean.” – Audra Weaser.
