Reprieve: The Gospel of Beauty | Featured Works by Maggie Hasbrouck
Throughout the course of Hasbrouck’s career, her technical ingenuity and imaginative subject matter has helped her gain recognition from both collectors and critics. There is a deep emotionality to her work as the dark picture plane exists in-between reality and a dream-like state
Bill Lowe Gallery presents Reprieve: The Gospel of Beauty, a solo exhibition of new photographic encaustic paintings by Atlanta’s most beloved female artist, Maggie Hasbrouck. In Hasbrouck’s latest body of work, she returns to dramatic depictions of flowers – often single blooms – at the apex of their transformational beauty. The vibrancy and sensuality of these images is heightened by the artist’s recent incorporation of glass crystals into her technique. Hasbrouck melts glass crystals into multiple layers of oil paint, dry pigment, and organic beeswax, resulting in a lustrous layer that enhances the mystery of the work.
