Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden: Gail Norfleet: Made in Layers - Dallas (Thru Dec. 7)

Nov 2 2019 - 10:00am to Dec 7 2019 - 5:00pm
Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden
6616 Spring Valley Road
Dallas , TX

Plexiglass continues to be a foundational element in Gail Norfleet's work. The clear material is the surface upon which she applies paint and collage, and its inherent transparency allows light to illuminate multiple layers. Working on the front and back, and on two panels, creates a real space. In this exhibition, Norfleet places familiar still life subjects (flowers, vases, birds) in front of brightly rendered landscapes and surreal interiors. The subjects originating from life are playfully manipulated into impossible yet compelling compositions.
