Lawre Stone “The Silvery Water and the Starry Earth”

Window On Hudson is thrilled to present “The Silvery Water and the Starry Earth” by Lawre Stone. This group of 48 images were painted specifically for the storefront windows and will be on view from July 6th – August 1, 2022.

An Artist’s Reception will take place on Saturday, July 9th from 3-5pm. Window On Hudson will stay open until 8pm along with many other galleries participating in the 2econd Saturday Hudson Gallery Crawl.

“The Silvery Water and the Starry Earth” is also being presented by The Hudson Eye for this year’s Upstate Art Weekend, July 22-24, 2022. The main exhibition is on view 24/7 while additional indoor works can be seen from 11am – 5pm, Friday – Sunday, during UAW.

About “The Silvery Water and the Starry Earth” Stone says, “I’m always looking to integrate ideas from art history into my work, especially the history of abstraction. This piece takes its title from an illustrated alchemical treatise by the 10th century scholar and alchemist Muhammad Ibn Umayl. Alchemists believed that 3 natural elements: sulphur, mercury and salt, could be combined through transmutation, to produce the “elixir of eternal life” or for material context, transform lead into gold. For the 10th c. alchemist, the element Mercury was the ‘silvery water’, and Sulphur was the ‘starry earth’. “I can appreciate Ibn Umayl’s reverence for the natural world and the belief that a single element may hold immense power and wisdom. Sulphur was considered an expansive force and stood for the human soul. Mercury embodied the fluid, omnipresent spirit of life and stood for the human body. I’m fascinated to consider these centuries old ideas as I contemplate our 21st century climate disaster.” Stone continues, “The emergency of our time and an existential future compel me to empathize with aspects of the natural world through color, image, shape and gesture. I’m interested in finding what must be discarded and what must be carried forward. The un-seen contains both the beauty and the horror of what we have done. For me, painting is a portal to this unseen world.” About Lawre Stone Lawre Stone grew up in suburban New Jersey and remembers painting the iridescent colors of a polluted sky over the oil slicked Passaic River from her bedroom.
