BEAUTY: Painting--Stacey Durand
Stacey Durand paints kaleidoscopic mash-ups of streets, neighborhoods, and towns. I love how she takes an almost Cubist approach to portraying multiple views within a single frame, yet the result still looks ordered and architectural. And her marvelous Expressionist-like color choices look like the work of Wayne Thiebaud! Maybe it is the solidity of her subject matter, or her bold compositions, but Durand's work is visually and psychologically satisfying to view.
