Mexican painter Cecilia Villanueva's new solo show has been influenced by her observations of city architecture around the world. For 15 years, she has been inspired by architecture past and present, but more recently she's noticed a shift away from solid buildings and to empty space, voids and vacancies. Villanueva has also drawn inspiration from French philosopher Edgar Morin and his work on “complex thought.” In "Embraced by the Void," viewers will see few lines and hues of indigo, aerial views or views from Google Earth, paintings rendered in oils and mineral ink. "Embraced by the Void" will be on view through November 2. Villanueva will be available to visit with guests during the opening reception on Saturday, with an artist’s talk scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
