Eclipsing Colors
Work by Valia Oliver
Opening reception and gallery talk Friday, July 26, 6-9pm
Gasoline Gallery, 2493 Broad Avenue
On view by appointment through Wednesday, July 31 

This is the second of a sixteen-part exhibition series curated by Jason Miller entitled Circuitous Succession.

According to the event's Facebook page, Miller became aware of Valia's overlapping layers of subtle opacities and complex color pallet and instantly wanted to curate a show based on his selections from her vast ensemble of watercolor works. He notes a wide range of classical to contemporary art influences found in Val's work ranging from Cubism to Heightened Abstraction. Miller finds human forms merged with rainbow montages poured forth as an array of colors rivaling that of the most diverse botanic gardens. His love of flowers and wildlife is complemented by Val's colorful arrangements and imaginative details. Much of Val's work reminds Miller of the style of Henri Matisse, who was one of the first artists to influence his own work at an early age.
