Merge Gallery in Chelsea offers an upbeat and colorful show this holiday season. Featured artist Jessica Snow gives us her current exhibition " Incident in the Territory of Invention".
Ms. Snow employs a wonderful technique of broad brush strokes cleverly framing intricate displays that stimulate the eye and the imagination. Abstract landscapes that feel urban and natural at the same time. Her use of color is bold and yet the pieces have an overall soothing effect. This show is a pleasure to see. There are so many times you can appreciate an artist's work - but never imagine having it in your home. Ms. Snow has an ability to open your mind - but also make you want to own one of these pieces for yourself.
The setting of Merge Gallery is also a treat. A little jewel box of a gallery - it is a frame itself to the wonderful work it selects show after show.
Be sure to visit, this show runs through January 10th.
