Go toward the light. The inner light, that is, when the stunning solo exhibition “Inner Light: New Paintings by Ursula O’Farrell” comes to the Alex Bult gallery from Feb. 4 through March 1.
Considered an heir of the German Expressionist movement by her eminent art instructors and colleagues, O’Farrell examines the inner light that people possess through her paintings—a study she continued through her years earning a bachelor’s degree in Painting and Drawing from Loyola Marymount University, a master’s degree in Fine Art from San Jose State University, studying painting in Florence, Italy and traveling with the Eugene Escallier Scholarship for the study of German and Austrian Expressionism.
“Perhaps modern life has created an environment of hyper-speed which causes us to forget what it is to be fully human,” O’Farrell observes. “I think we work too much in our minds, trusting science over our emotional intelligence. In effect, I think we turn our backs on the abundance available to us if we just learn to listen to whatever we call that voice of our soul.”
Listen up at the preview on Thursday, Feb. 6 from 6-8 p.m. or at the artist’s reception on Saturday, Feb. 8 from 6-9 p.m. For more information, call (916) 476-5540 or visit alexbultgallery.com. The Alex Bult Gallery is located at 1114 21st St., Suite B in midtown.
