Christine Lafuente, “Daffodils, Creamer, and Clock,” 2018, oil on linen, 14 x 18 in.

A solo exhibition by Christine Lafuente, titled “Colors of a Day,” is on exhibit through May 4, 2019 at Somerville Manning Gallery (Delaware).

From the gallery:

Lafuente is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and continues the tradition of painting from the life around her in its natural light. Now living and working in Brooklyn, NY, she has taught and traveled extensively, imbuing her personal artistic practice with a sense of wisdom and maturity.

In her eighth solo exhibition with Somerville Manning Gallery, Lafuente once again focuses her eye on the falling of light and color, masterfully creating objects out of these ephemeral materials. While living in Brooklyn and spending her summers in Maine, she paints both interior vignettes and landscapes that breathe with the same graceful breath. The ease of her brushstroke is at once bold and comforting, effortlessly defining a glass bottle or a daffodil or a seaside cliff.
