Sculpture and Ellen LeBow

Ellen LeBow is showing new work at Rice Polak in Provincetown, MA, August 13th - August 26th.

The good news is I'll be back east in time to see it! I've written about her work here

The detail in her work is amazing. Click on either image to enlarge.

Here's what Rice Polak says about her new work: "Her latest body of work is a series black and white drawings executed in ink on clayboard. In this medium, the artist paints on special white board in ink and then scratches the drawing through the black, inked areas. LeBow’s recent imagery, is a radical departure from the Haitian focus of her past work. LeBow’s new, elongated panels attempt to depict the ecstatic, indiscriminate onslaught of life on time. Each one features the decent of a tumbling, cosmic cloud packed with characters “cannibalized,” she says, from personal and artistic influences. LeBow weaves a compressed assault of “divine messengers” that collapse time and space, threatening to at once overpower and exalt the earth-bound life below. As always, the results are stunning in their power and beauty of line.

Sigh....great weather and great art! How lucky you are! Major jealousy on my part! So glad though that you get to see her work first hand.
