Press Release

Locks Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recently completed gouache paintings by Philadelphia artist Neysa Grassi. These intimately scaled works on paper are the continuation of a series begun by the artist in Italy in 1997. The paintings depict intricate patterns of swirling lines intermingled with ephemeral yet often striking washed of color. Much like Grassi's larger works in oil on canvas, this sensuous, abstract imagery is repeated in multiple translucent layers of paint - creating a densely woven texture of light and color.
