Denver, CO., This March Abend Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition from the fantastic Lindsey Kustusch. This body of work showcases her immeasurable talent and ability to depict both the city and the natural world, this time focusing on places in Colorado. The viewer can expect to see some of their favorite local places and spaces in Kustusch’s signature style, beautifully rendered landscapes that highlight nature’s beauty and the air of grit you feel in the city. The exhibition runs from Saturday March 10th through the 31st, with an opening reception on March 10th from 6-9 pm.
Kustusch’s signature style is fully apparent in works like “Taffy in Estes Park”. The light from the shop’s sign and front window emanates a glow that is both warm and inviting. The worn paint on the building’s exterior is captured beautifully, showing its age and imperfection. “Travel by Train” is an excellent example of Kustusch’s ability to capture the grit of the city. Caught in a rain storm, the lights produce a haze and reflect against the wet roads, producing a scene of warm and cool tones that truly capture the feel of a city.
We will also get to see some of the artist’s wonderful landscapes in this exhibition. “Dream Lake” shows how the artist blends together the elements of a place to capture its essence. The lake’s waters appear still yet the motion is visible below the surface. The colors of its mountainous background suggest the changing of the seasons, with varying shades of green and red in the trees, and a light snow blanketing the ground.
What is most apparent in the exhibition is the artist’s incredible ability to fully capture and render her chosen subjects in her signature style. Her sense of light and dark presents itself in such a way as to give the viewer a real glimpse into the artists’ mind, her processes and perspective. There is an almost eerie quality to her paintings that emphasizes the subject matter which separates her work from many other artists working today.
Lindsey Kustusch is an American artist working in San Francisco, California. She received her
