Mysteries: David Geiser & Lucy Villeneuve
On view through June 10.
Mysteries at Keyes Art Gallery pays homage to David Geiser while marking Lucy Villeneuve’s first major show. Both are abstract expressionists. Geiser’s canvases are tactile and deep, often composed of many layers of shellac, pitch, tar, rope and scrap wood. Villeneuve works with the elements of Daoism and specifically the Wu Wei, the art of non-doing, while focusing on the experience of painting rather than the work itself.
