"Seeing Music: Color Finds Rhythms, Harmonies, and Counterpoints" features new work by local artist Lorna Ritz. In her paintings she is developing the tradition coming out of cubism and Hans Hofmann’s plastic space.
Lorna says: “My painting process is unsettling, passionate, radical, and driven. All together, a body of paintings becomes like the movements of a symphony that take a year or more to fully realize. Each painting has immediacy to it, but takes time to complete; it’s my own personal paradox. The painting is the consequence of technique and skill brought about by the concept. That is how what ends up on my canvas gets said, and how my paintings come to be.”
Lorna Ritz received a BFA from Pratt and an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. She has taught at RISD, Brown U., Dartmouth College, U of Minnesota, the New York Studio School, and has shown extensively at galleries, museums, and embassies.
