(Houston, TX, Jan 18 2021) – Laura Rathe Fine Art announces Color Story, a multimedia duo exhibition featuring new work from Michael Laube and Paul Rousso. LRFA will be hosting the opening reception on Thursday, February 24th from 6-9pm at their River Oaks District gallery (4444 Westheimer Rd.)


This exhibition presents new bodies of work that inventively redefine the use of color to transform our visual experience. Laube and Rousso, both working within three dimensions, use their distinct processes to dramatize painting’s materiality and amplify the visual force of color. Working on transparent glass, Laube carefully layers paint in a presentation that ultimately appears weightless in space, transforming as one walks past and ruling out any concreteness of form. In stark contrast, Rousso uses bold, hallucinatory color and whimsically massive scale to reimagine the disciplines of collage and sculpture and force the viewer to reconsider their visual experience. Together, Laube and Rousso present a balance dance with color to both delight and challenge the eye.


Color Story will be on display through March 28th 2022.
