"Laura Bidwa: You Sing So Quiet"

The Rebecca Ibel Gallery is delighted to present a solo exhibition of Columbus artist Laura Bidwa. This show titled 'You Sing So Quiet' features a group of paintings that represent the culmination of ideas from the past few years. These small landscape paintings, 12 x 15 inches, are gems. Bidwa continues her practice of taking prepared panels of solid backgrounds (gold, dark red-brown and chalkboard) out into the metro parks of Columbus. Painting 'en plein aire', responding directly to nature, gives the work an immediate feel. You can sense the seasons in the trees. Her 'mark-making' style of minimal color with spotty lines and brushy touches describes the landscape as much as it reveals the process of painting. Bidwa folds Asian influences and abstract technique into the long-standing tradition of landscape painting.
Laura Bidwa received her BA from Indiana University in 1990 and her MFA from The Ohio State University in 1996. Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in the Midwest, with recent shows in New York and Miami Beach. She has been exhibiting with the gallery since 2003.
