Ellipses is an art exhibition featuring work by abstract painter Julia Rymer. This exhibition marks Rymer’s first showing both with the gallery as well as within the Kansas City area, and features her recent mixed media paintings and works on paper.
“Ellipses” refers to the defining element of Rymer’s work, an elliptical, oval form that recurs in each piece. She paints and draws these organic forms intuitively, referencing natural phenomena like rocks, cells, planetary orbits, and particle clouds. Inspired by her interest in physics, astronomy and color theory, as well as a childhood spent immersed in the plains and mountains of Colorado, Rymer’s work celebrates the beauty of the natural world.
Julia Rymer is an abstract artist based in Denver, Colorado whose work has been exhibited widely across the country, and is included in numerous private and corporate collections throughout the United States. She holds an M.F.A. in Painting from Pratt Institute in New York, and a B.F.A. in Painting from the University of Denver.
An opening reception and artist talk for Ellipses will take place on Thursday, May 3rd from 5 to 8 pm. The exhibition continues through June 30, 2018.
