Working large, Court Lurie’s paintings read as a narrative tableau, a rich visual journey. Each oil painting is an exploration of the painted surface, spatial relations and gestural drawing. The immersive canvases, some as large as 8.5 feet long, invite the viewer to spend time moving from calm swaths of pale paint to energetic patches of soft, geometric activity. Lurie effectively nourishes us visually and emotionally with her engaging and generous work.
