Symphony No. 1
Blum & Poe, New York
Delicacy has no place in the pastels of artist Mimi Lauter, who creates richly textured, chromatically dense works that hint at art-historical tropes, from religious paintings to Post-Impressionist still lifes. Here, 20 or so of the artist’s works are arranged throughout four rooms, mirroring the structure of a symphony. As you walk through the gallery, the works crescendo into bursts of color and texture.
