Opening April 1, the show will display a new collection of paintings from Stratton that explore subjects and imagery that have fascinated the artist throughout her career. Stratton stated, “What I like about this new collection of paintings is that I’m able to integrate many subjects I have a fondness for painting and have been drawn to throughout my career. Landscapes, flora and fauna have long been favorite subjects since I was a small child. I am using a bit of surrealism to incorporate the natural world that surrounds me with the figurative work I’ve been painting for many years.”

Stratton’s work is absolutely enchanting. Using oil paints and silver leaf, Stratton creates a multilayered surface that invigorates one’s perceptions and experience of the pictures. Gallery owner and director Robert Lange says, “There is a romantic, almost cinematic quality to June’s work. She has a way of easily orchestrating a complex painting. Even though many of the works are figurative, each painting has a unique narrative seamlessly interwoven into the composition.”
“Interplay: Beauty Observed” opens on April 1 and will be on view through the end of the month. To learn more, visit Robert Lange Studios.
