Alas that the lobster and canary could not swim/fly to New Orleans to see the exhibit of work by Adele Sypesteyn at the Soren Christensen Gallery in New Orleans.
Her paintings above are "Moving Quickly" and "First Moments."
We love her enigmatic landscapes, with their flourishes, curls and mutterings. She uses space very well, sending us on a search for balance, our mind flowing with the picture's energy. Like those laid down by Tapies and Twombly, her planes are flat but hint at immanence, capturing just behind the frame a presence from outside. Suggests to us what the source code for the primordial Garden might have looked like...
