Liminal Spaces: New Paintings

About the Exhibit: Keystone Art Space is pleased to exhibit the work of artist Krista Machovina. Machovina’s oil on panel paintings capture the liminal spaces of no longer and not yet through the metaphor of the sea and sky.  The almost abstract images that result evoke the tonalist and color field movement, with an emotive element that makes the viewer feel they stand before a portrait a of a well studied and familiar visage.  These works are quiet, meditative spaces in which a moment of calm can be found at this gallery within the heart of bustling and industrial growing arts region of North East Los Angeles.  A portion of proceeds from sales of this exhibit will benefit Create LA andThe Art of Elysium.
