Award winning artist, Alane Levinsohn, will have a showing of her figurative male nude etchings and painting at a reception held at Big Mike Art Gallery/Studio on December 4, 2021, from 3-7. Big Mike Art Gallery/Studio is located at 610 S. Belardo Road #200, Palm Springs, California.
Trained at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California and at the Academie Royale des Beaux-Arts, in Brussels, Belgium, Levinsohn has participated in many art exhibitions and has garnered art awards since 2014.
“My figurative artwork starts as a feeling about the sitter I want to convey – strength, isolation, solitude, confidence,” said Levinsohn. “I paint from life on a white canvas background, wet into wet in the alla prima style, often with the underpainting showing though. By painting live models and leaving working lines, I try to capture the constant shifting of a living, breathing body and that moment in time. My work is white on white with white frames so that the figure itself floats on the wall, eliminating points of cultural reference and context.”
The realism in Levinsohn’s work is astounding. You won’t want to miss this meet and greet.
