Laura Rathe Fine Art, announces a debut solo exhibition featuring new works by 26-year-old artist, Dylan Gebbia-Richards. Laura Rathe Fine Art will be hosting the opening reception on Saturday, October 20th from 6-9pm at their 2707 Colquitt St location.
Gebbia-Richards paintings are a symphony of rich color and densely constructed texture. Through his innovative process using wax, pigment, and resin, Gebbia-Richards aims to reinvent how we perceive nature. Whether its mountain ranges, molten rock from an erupted volcano, vibrant coral reefs, or even cavernous rock formations, the viewer can’t help but recognize his sources of inspiration. Gebbia-Richards’ paintings quite literally jump off the canvas, transporting the viewer into another dimension that deems both familiar and otherworldly.
Although his paintings vary in size, they each spark an experience of unparalleled proportion. Their undulating forms, prismatic pigments, and protruding texture captivate the senses and send them on a memorable adventure.
SIGN OF A MIRAGE will be on display through November 21st, 2018.
Gebbia-Richards attended the University of Colorado Boulder and received both his BA in art history and BFA in studio art. He has showcased extensively across the United States, including New York, Texas, Florida and Colorado, as well as in the UK.
