Vaulted Gallery – 12
1389 Duane Street
This month Vaulted Gallery will host the work of artist Maquette Reeverts. Maquette’s paintings are a play on photographic “accidents” interpreted in acrylic and oils. The abstract visuals emulate the bokeh effects in photography, which are the out-of-focus shapes resulting from light beams traveling through the lens. In her paintings, the soft focus and unintended cropping of subjects become the feature rather than the mistake.
