Windows into the Modern and Mythic West Exhibit

J GO Gallery invites you to join us as we welcome a new body of work by contemporary oil painter Sherri Belassen. Belassen's vibrant and multi-layered abstract figurative works depict icons of both the modern and mythic west. The various subjects that enter Belassen's vision include larger-than-life mythic cowboys, longhorns, and horses, as well modern Western icons: dancers, gardens, and golfers. Consistent throughout Belassen’s work is her instinctual physical sensibility, where tango dancers are caught mid-dip, rancheros pause amid the red butte landscape, and cows languish companionably in abstract color fields. Belassen begins her pieces with loose, dripping underpaintings that she then uses as a base for her subjects. As she works the foreground, she includes windows and frequently large shapes that are left open and which integrate the early layer to create depth and texture in the final composition.
