Art Exhibit – Jane Ehrlich
Window On Hudson is thrilled to announce its November artist, Jane Ehrlich: “lightshifts,” November 6th – November 30th, 2020. “lightshifts,” a series of nonreferential light-filled paintings are “…composed of straight, white, zig zag, and curvilinear layers of transparencies that interact with the ground color. At times the paint is loose and fluid creating tonal variations as well as a thick opaque impasto. The layering creates a strong presence of light with monochromatic variations that suggest an active and atmospheric environment.”
These works have allowed her to play with color, light and gesture that evolve from a single color. By mixing phosphorescent pigments with her acrylics Ehrlich gives us the opportunity to see these works on canvas transform. A painting can be viewed under normal light, but when it is exposed to UV-A light a new spectrum of colors is exposed, presenting us with an alternate and enhanced work. This ‘second state’ was something Ehrlich discovered as the series developed and her experimentation continued.
Window On Hudson offers storefront window exhibition space for artists of Hudson and the Hudson Valley, showcasing a new artist on a monthly basis. The windows are prominently visible 24/7 at 43 South 3rd Street, Hudson NY 12534.
