Abend Gallery is proud to present For the Love of Trees, a solo exhibition featuring the works of gallery artist Deb Komitor. Daring and daunting, the paintings of Deb Komitor put perspective at the forefront. As an artist whose interest primarily lies in depicting the natural realm, Komitor has the ability to articulate her point of view in a captivating and clear manner.
In her latest series she focuses her attention on the trees. From the ground up we see them in an abstract haze, the giants touching the sky. Each knot and twisted branch displays their unique characteristics, the individual idiosyncrasies. Komitor’s decision to portray these works in an almost pixilated fashion, asks the viewer to take a step back in order to see her works fully realized. This in turn draws you in and keeps you there. Her warm interpretations render you frozen, made to stay and take in the details.
Her vivid color choices accurately reflect the scenes she chooses to depict as well. At times they appear almost photographic, which again highlights the style in which she paints. Komitor’s patience and connection to her environment along with her attention to detail and ability to find the spaces and places within nature that communicate and connect with both the artist and viewer function on a level that is rare and not often found.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, September 4 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Abend Gallery Fine Art was established in 1990 and offers an extensive collection of fine art from fresh, contemporary works to traditional, representational paintings and sculpture by national and internationally recognized professional artists.
