The St. Louis Artists’ Guild announces two shows opening in the Curated Gallery, Shanlin Ye and Sole Van Emden.
Shanlin Ye – “Reflections.” Shanlin explores the mysteries of the human face. These works are not about seeking realism or perfection, but rather their opposite: the rough, imperfect, broken and abnormal. Her portraits seek to engage emotions hidden from view; to reveal unseen and unexpressed parts of the human experience.
Sole Van Emden- “Interior Moments.” Van Emden’s recent series of paintings focus on interior scenes that explore ideas about space. Her smaller works deal with movement through pictorial space by placing the viewer in solitude while looking beyond, even moving through to a suggested, perhaps dreamy place.
