Gerald Peters Gallery Contemporary

Lorraine Shemesh’s recent paintings explore a dialogue between disjuncture and harmony using intertwining figures in motion or balanced.

These works are infused with a conceptual abstraction underscored by an explosive palette and enigmatic space. The relationship between tension and wariness are read in each gesture, made visible by her masterful handling of form and light, as the works express elements of the human condition in lyrical form.

Trellis and Slide will be included in an upcoming solo exhibition at Dartmouth College in the Fall of 2021. Shemesh will serve as the Artist-in- Residence during that time.

In the texture of her illusion, the plasticity of her material, she [Shemesh] creates a way of feeling and seeing that pulls us into spaces of intimacy and a fresh view of the human body.
