USA United States of America
Rebecca Ibel Gallery is pleased to announce Eye Play, an exhibition of new
paintings by Robin Bruch. Often admired as a painters painter, Robin
Bruchs abstract work has been recognized by artists and curators since the
early seventies, when it was exhibited at the Bykert Gallery in New York.
Since then, her work has been included in numerous exhibitions around the
country, including a Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, and is
featured in such private collections as Christof de Menil, Philip Schrager
and Julian Schnabel.
Bruch continues to work in an abstract tradition, where geometry and color
define the picture. Bruchs recent group of paintings are playful, energetic
and colorful. The work stimulates the viewers eye to dance around the
painting as wind blows through a flag. Indeed, the roots of Bruchs
influences harken back to textile traditions, with the patterning and play of
Navajo textiles and American quilts.
Robin Bruch has been exhibiting with the gallery over the past five years,
but this is her first solo exhibition. Originally from Cleveland, Bruch now
divides her time between Manhattan and upstate New York.
A reception for the artist was held on Saturday, June 26, 1999 from 5 - 8
The exhibition will be open through Saturday, July 31, 1999.
Rebecca Ibel Gallery features paintings and works on paper by contemporary
artists. The gallery at 1055 N. High Street is open Tuesday through Saturday
11 - 5 p.m. and by appointment.
