My husband and I dropped by the Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia a little while ago to see a show by painter Christine Lafuente. We knew Chris when she lived in Philadelphia before she made the move to Brooklyn. One of her paintings, a portrait, graces our living room. It was great to see her again!
Subtones in Springtime featured Chris’s latest work, still lifes and landscapes. Her work is characterized by bold, unfussy brush work and a rich, expressive color palette.
I took lots of pictures of her paintings, but I am not posting them here because I think her work is better represented on the web sites that I have listed at the end of this post.
I found this video online when I was doing research for this post. It must have been made on the day we saw the exhibit, because there’s a clear shot of the back of my head!
To learn more about Christine Lafuente and her work, go to her website. See more of her work here. Read an interview with her here.
