Last Week to See Ruta Reifen’s “Sweet Islands”

Sweet Islands by Ruta Reifen

In this body of work created for Gallery Loupe, I go back to basics.

I close my eyes and dream of white clouds on beaches.

To give a sense of a suspended space for dwelling on romantic white beaches, I carved intricate flowery forms growing out of a flat clear outlined shape.

I create a bounded space symbolizing a micro-cosmos while the organic clusters are an eruption of beauty- Islands.

Painting white, erasing place and time allows these pieces to forever be anyone’s dream land.


Reifen’s “Sweet Islands” Installation at Gallery Loupe will be on view through September 3rd.
