When I first came upon LeCrue Eyebrows‘ artworks on the streets of my city, I was struck at once by its singular authenticity. Each piece intrigues, as it exudes a distinct aura of mystery. Visual meditations on such universal themes as love, loss and longing, the works are subtly strong and strikingly beautiful.
Not to be missed is the Queens-based artist’s first solo exhibition at Van Der Plas Gallery. At once quietly raw and soulfully elegant, each work tells a story – to be freely interpreted by its viewer. And each piece was created freely and spontaneously, as nothing that Lecrue creates is premeditated. The act of painting, itself, is to the artist “an intense form of meditation.”
The beguiling image pictured above, “Move with Me,” was fashioned this year with acrylic on canvas. Several more images I captured while visiting “Primitive Form” last weekend follow:
“Own Storm,” Acrylic on canvas, 2022
“Stand With Me,” Acrylic on canvas, 2022
“Her Breath in Time,” Acrylic on canvas, 2022
“Just Beyond the Window,” Acrylic on canvas, 2022
And on a somewhat different note — “Together,” Mixed media on cold press paper, 2022
“Primitive Form” continues at Van Der Plas Gallery through October 23. Located at 156 Orchard Street, the gallery is open Mon-Tue: 12pm-5pm, Wed-Sat: 11pm-6pm and Sunday: 11am-5pm. A closing reception will take place on Friday, October 21 from 6-8pm.
Note: You can take a 3D tour of “Primitive Form” here.
