Leah Giberson: New Work
SOLD WORK WILL SHIP AT THE END OF THE EXHIBITION (NOVEMBER 29)
It’s been a couple years since Boston-based artist Leah Giberson has shown her work with us at Nahcotta, so we couldn’t be more stoked for her solo show, opening this Friday! Adored for her combination of hyper-photorealism with acrylics, this new body of work continues in her cherished theme and medium, depicting, among other scenes, campers, and empty lawnchairs. Using actual photographs, Giberson accentuates and embellishes at will with the mighty tools of acrylic paint and imagination, bringing to (new) life these tableaus captured from real life.
Of her own work, Giberson has said, “shadows loom from unknown/unseen sources, horizon lines become uncomfortably close … there is also a sense of bravery or at least a blind and determined optimism.” We wholeheartedly agree – there is indeed a sense of something having happened or imminently occurring in Giberson's work - static imagery that vibrates with possibility.
Come join all of us at the gallery in celebrating Leah’s exhibition on Friday, November 6, from 5-8 PM!
