Lynette Cook: Catching Shadows

Exhibition Website

Apr 23 2016 - Jun 5 2016

Lynette Cook’s shadow-centric urban scenes – executed using exceptional concentration, patience, and skill – pay homage and provide clues to the individual lives of those who inhabit San Francisco’s Chinatown and neighboring communities. Yet the life-like acrylic paintings – capturing light as it dramatically moves across this unique environment with its utility poles, balconies, stairs, and laundry hanging out to dry – also represent that which is universal in human experience and connects people on a basic level. With meticulous detail and vibrant color strategically placed, the commonplace is celebrated and rises to the extraordinary.
