As she preps a brand new solo present at De Boer Gallery this September, we needed to try certainly one of our favourite painters from the previous few years, Noelia Towers in at the moment’s A Portfolio.
Noelia Towers (b. 1992) is a Chicago-based artist born and raised in Barcelona. Her topics of selection show the facility of intimacy whereas investigating the connection between pleasure and ache, belief, and love with references to bigger philosophical quandaries. Towers’ laborious work are made in a sensible fashion. Her brush strokes are a mix of representational and light-weight impasto, creating a high quality that refers back to the stark digital nature of informal modern snapshots. The ensuing work are unsettling portraits that relate to the artist’s personal distinctive perspective.
