Art Exhibition Reception
Anne Cherubim: From Aloft & Through the Ether
Thursday, February 7, 2018 (Evening)
EVENT TYPE: Art Exhibition
Tonight’s reception honors artist Anne Cherubim’s current series of paintings which are inspired by aerial views, satellite imagery, and the cosmos. Featuring abstract, colourful, textural canvases, the paintings depict imagined views inspired by real life. Metallic paint causes images to seemingly shift depending on how the light hits them.
Anne Cherubim is an abstract contemporary landscape painter. Her art is rooted in real life images and textures, and often in a limited colour palette. An underlying thread in much of her work is the environment, & stewardship of the planet. Anne’s other body of work is The Recycled Art Project, a series of limited edition digital paintings.
Her words reflect someone who is a product of a myriad of cultures: a Canadian girl, born of Sri Lankan parents, now residing in the U.S. This unique ‘lens’ through which she sees the world informs her work, undeniably. ‘Tolerance’ is the word we use to talk about being open to, and welcoming of, one another. Anne believes ‘embrace’ is a much better word for talking about cultures, and the ways in which we can coexist. Art and music transcend language – among other barriers- and create commonalities, harmony. They are universals that can be appreciated no matter where you come from, or what language you speak.
Anne has enjoyed exhibiting her work locally and internationally. Her art has been displayed on billboards in Times Square, is the subject of blogs, was exhibited in a castle in Italy, displayed at BWI Airport, and has been reviewed in the Washington Post.
