Opening Reception: There will not be an Opening Reception for this exhibit. We will not be open late for First Friday on January 4th 2019.
Bert Beirne has been painting still-lifes for nearly three decades and is considered one of the important painters of the genre living today. Since receiving her BFA from the University of Cincinnati, Beirne’s work is most often compared to the Dutch and Flemish masters of the early Seventeenth Century; painters such as Kalf & Heda.
Working with only natural light from a northern exposure and using multiple layers of translucent oil glazes, Bert Beirne is able to create works of great depth and astonishing realism. The process is a slow and patient one, resulting in pictures of remarkable clarity and arresting beauty.
This exhibition showcases work produced by Beirne over the past year. The successive layers of paint create rich colors with depth and luminosity.
