Luminous Heights: Paintings by Alexandra Pacula
Paintings of glowing nighttime vistas based on photographs taken from the top of buildings in New York City.
My work investigates a world of visual intoxication; it captures moments of enchantment, which are associated with urban nightlife. I am fascinated by the ambiance of the city at night and its seductive qualities. The breathtaking turbulence of speeding vehicles and hasty pedestrians evoke feelings of wonder and disorientation. The vibrant lights become a magical landscape with enticing opportunities and promises of fulfillment.On view at Gallery Henoch Oct 2 – 25.
