This exhibition presents a selection of approximately 25 paintings by Miami-based artist Lynne Gelfman. The selection includes several works from PAMM’s permanent collection and examples from as early as the 1970s, while focusing primarily on paintings produced over the last two decades. Interested in exploring various forms of mark-making and patterning techniques, Gelfman produces in series, using acrylic and flash paint on both canvas and wood.
Paintings from six of her series will be presented. Her methods play with the surfaces she uses in diverse ways, with certain series involving staining into the canvas, others creating reflections in gold and silver, others channeling drips of paint in angular lines down the front of her paintings. Miami’s natural environment, the textures of the sea and bleaching effects of sunlight are strong influences for the artist, as are textiles and weavings from various contexts, including Colombia where the artist has lived and worked periodically throughout her career.
