Jessica Rice: Modern Nostalgia
Merritt Gallery in Haverford
December 5-14, 2013
Jessica Rice: Modern Nostalgia features a collection of modernist oil paintings by Jessica Rice.
Jessica Rice’s richly diverse style evokes a wide range of early 20th century avant-garde abstract art movement of cubism, social realism, and art deco modernism. Her subjects encompass all aspects of modern life. Whether geometric representations of bustling industrial scenes, ensembles of workmen, beach goers, strolling couples, or children at play, her work is infused with a charming innocence. Her simple figures of heroic dimension are wrapped in a persuasive nostalgia. With distinctive brush strokes and use of palette knives, she creates compositions that echo traditions of three continents, Africa, Europe and America.
Jessica Rice: Modern Nostalgia is available to view and purchase at Merritt Gallery in Haverford from December 5-14, 2013. For more details contact the gallery.
