Lynne Golob Gelfman
Perez Art Museum Miami
On view until April 21, 2019
Driving to the Perez Art Museum Miami over the Venetian Causeway may resemble a clip from Grand Theft Auto but inside the museum Lynne Golob Gelfman's artwork quietly occupies space on its own terms within the skyscraper skyline.
The Miami based artist is trained in traditional modernist aesthetics which she both honors and subverts. Gelfman has lived and worked at various times in Colombia, a place where she investigated indigenous textile and basket weaving techniques, evidence of which can be seen in her "lines," abstractions where invisible horizontal markings interact with applications of dripping paint that move vertically down the surface, creating a patterning that recall the irregular grids of textiles.
