Lynette Blake: Within and Beyond
Weeks Art Gallery at Baltimore Woods
Baltimore Woods Nature Center
4007 Bishop Hill Rd.,
Lynette Blake's oil paintings draw the viewer in through complex layers of shape and color. The use of overlapping imagery conveys a depth that extends deep below the surface of the canvas. Objects, whether used directly or evoked by abstract shapes, float in and out of light illuminating them with a pervasive warm glow. The effect is otherworldly -- a feeling of being outside time and space is conveyed.
Blake has exhibited her work throughout the Northeast, and is currently represented locally by the Szozda Gallery in Syracuse, as well as national venues. She studied art at Brown University in Rhode Island and currently resides in Upstate NY.
