[Sponsored]

A solo show of abstract paintings from Barbara Bilotta’s “Underwater Series” will be held from May 3 to 19 at the Remsenburg Academy in Remsenburg, NY. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, May 11, from 5 to 8 p.m. The gallery is open Fridays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

New York born painter Barbara Bilotta considers herself an Abstract Expressionist, a categorization that hints at the uniquely stylized and deconstructed acrylic and resin compositions that she extracts from natural images. Her canvases combine forms of bold color in fluidly layered shapes. The resin lends a lacquered shine and textural dimensionality to each piece, so that light plays off the colors in surprising ways.

The mixing of acrylic and resin also accentuates the intensive layering involved in each piece. Bilotta’s work thereby gains an architectonic quality.

The striking abstract patterns in her works are more than just arrangements of colors and shapes. Her love of nature animates those patterns, forging a connection between pure abstraction and organic forms.
