Barbara Kassel - Interior Life Exhibition - 2019 Installation View
Barbara Kassel"s evocative paintings explore the passage of time. From her loft in New York City, she paints interior and exterior views, creating a visual diary of daily life. Working with oil on panel, the smooth surfaces are meticulously rendered serene scenes. Warm reds and yellow embrace cooler blues and grays and invite the viewer into the large-scale works. Kassel describes the paintings in part biographical and instinctually narrative. Carefully exploring the world around her, she mixes observation and invention as she captures fleeting moments in time.
Kassel received her MFA from Yale University and BFA from Slade School of Fine Art, London. Recent solo exhibitions include Maxwell Davidson Gallery, University Art Gallery, University of New Mexico, and Craven Gallery on Vineyard. Kassel"s paintings have been featured in group exhibitions at the Carpenter Center Gallery, Harvard University and Campbell Thiebaud Gallery, San Francisco, among others. Barbara Kassel"s s work can be found in numerous private, public and corporate collections
