Then The Morning Comes
Real Art Ways presents a solo exhibition by Newtown-based artist Lydia Viscardi, curated by David Borawski.
Viscardi utilizes mixed media, oil, and collage to create paintings that depict complicated layered scenes. The resulting textures and saturated color palette encourages the viewer to explore every nook and cranny to discover what hides within their compositions. Found textiles and images offer uncanny moments of legibility in otherwise chaotic scenes.
