From Feb. 11 to March 17, the Lynnwood Library Gallery will feature artwork by Danila Rumold and Michael Lorefice.
Danila Rumold – Illuminated Kinships: Oil paintings and Monotypes
In Rumold’s paintings, figure and ground meet and disintegrate. Her relationship to trees and architecture provides an entry into the creative process. She says, “Nature presents color, while memory saturates it.” Her painting process includes layering, scraping, scratching and sanding. The physicality builds a dense texture that adds to the play between surface, space and depth.
Rumold has an MFA from the University of Washington. She teaches for Seattle University. She exhibits her work extensively in Seattle, Oregon, and Chicago, and is represented by Gallery I|M|A in Seattle.
Michael Lorefice – Oil paintings
Lorefice creates introspective paintings of mundane objects that make us rethink space and time. His work explores the space between representative and abstract painting, incorporating still life and photographic processes. He is fascinating by the confluence between art and science, with the overlap between the real and implied, the natural and the fabricated.
He has an MFA from Memphis College of Art and exhibits his work and teaches art regularly in the Puget Sound area.
Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. – 5 pm. Closed on national holidays. For more information, call 425-670-5518.
