Laura Rathe Fine Art announces Elsewhere, a group exhibition featuring new work from Caprice Pierucci, Michael Schultheis and Sydney Yeager. LRFA will be hosting the opening reception on Thursday, June 10th from 6-9pm at their River Oaks District gallery (4444 Westheimer Rd.)
While drawn from unique sources of inspiration and an array of differing mediums, the artwork included in this exhibition is unified by bending and undulating forms that transcend the senses, taking the viewer elsewhere, beyond the walls of the gallery. A feeling of controlled chaos emerges from this imagery, coalescing in a body of work that is as undeniably kinetic, while also soft and harmonious.
Elsewhere will be on display through July 12th, 2021.
Caprice Pierucci received her BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1983 and her MFA degree from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1989. She is a sculptor currently working mainly with wood. The forms use progressive rhythm to create movement and shadow. Her most recent work deals with the idea of forms developing over time. The layers and undulating rhythms in the forms speak of mortality and the huge expanses of time that lead to one particular moment of beauty. Her work is included in prestigious collections such as Westinghouse, Morgan Stanley and the Rockefeller collection.
Sydney Yeager is a Texas artist, having received her Bachelor of Fine Arts and her Masters in Fine Art from the University of Texas, Austin. She grew up just outside of Austin and currently lives and works in Austin, TX. Sydney started creating art over 35 years ago working in oil paint on a linen canvas using big/bold visceral brush strokes and color to create depth, and often leaving the blank space of the raw linen untouched. Her work is included in the permanent collection at the MFA in Houston, as well as other noted museums in Texas, and in highly regarded corporate collections such as BBVA, Toyota, Samsung, Neiman Marcus, and American Airlines.
Michael Schultheis is a Seattle-based artist who finds inspiration and elegance in the world of analytics. Schultheis has a background in mathematics and economics, giving his wildly colored abstract paintings the appearance of chalkboards filled progressively with notations and illustrations. In addition to his representation with several galleries nationwide, Schultheis has exhibited at the National Academies, the Rotunda Gallery at the National Academy of Sciences, Oregon State University, and The United States Embassy, Athens, Greece.
