Barney Savage is pleased to present Lucy Mink, in her first solo exhibition at the gallery.


There is a uniqueness, and exuberance in this selection of new oil paintings. These modest worlds all have an inner space that is alive with the movement of bright floral hues. They both spring forth at one moment, with visual poetry, and elegant gestural brush strokes; creating movement and guidance for the eye; while then retreating into intimacy. The corners of inviting shapes, and terrains play on figure ground relationships, and are cloaked with patterns, and motifs reminiscent of quilts, fabrics, and flattened color relationships.

There is a story here, undefined by narratives, and instead is a moment like before a blanket settles on its resting object, whether that is a love seat, or a mountain, or a coalesced space, somewhere between still life, and a full heart.

The titles of these exhibited paintings invite further intrigue. Some resonate like a glib answer to a question spoken between close friends. Others are like notes, and reminders that have a subliminal familiarity, that almost complete the experience of viewing, by returning you to your own subconscious order.
