David Summers: Out of the Light Into the Light

  • Les Yeux du Monde 841 Wolf Trap Road Charlottesville, VA (map)

OPENING RECEPTION - Saturday, 1 September, 5 – 7 p.m.

An exhibition of recent work by artist David Summers.

"The paintings are mostly arranged according to the thoughtless habit and permutationality of a life. They are paintings of familiar people and things, things I see out of the corner of my eye, gifts I have been given, things that strike my fancy (as we say), objects no longer meaningful once used. I try to make them as beautiful with light as they are, or were, or seem to try to persist to be. Painting light is a kind of homage to what is and was for me, much as it is and was for you, and it is inescapably both lyric and elegiac."
