Thru and ‘Trued’ Canvases

Lynne Golob Gelfman installation at Dimensions Variable.

The slightly askew white walls, the unfinished, splotchy concrete floor of Dimensions Variable (a Knight Arts grantee) turns out to be a great backdrop for the five large-scale paintings of Miami-based artist Lynne Golob Gelfman that are currently on display.

There is something topographical about the abstract paintings, most of which are recent work, which make them want to interact with the environment around them, such as the DV space. While there is nothing figurative, the paintings evoke landscapes and urbanscapes — and the relationship between the two. They seem to make a nice fit in the somewhat raw, unpolished downtown space.
