New Casa Europa Exhibit Connects Three Artists’ Visions, Styles

CASA EUROPA

By Cecilia Romero

Casa Europa en México is pleased to present an exhibition that explores the vision of three wonderful artists. Richard Keene, Lauren Linowitz, and Mary Li present their work in an exhibit that connects three visions, three styles, and three different ways.

Lauren Linowitz is an artist and world traveler who has lived in San Miguel de Allende since 1990. During the 1990s, she was well-known around town as a gifted photographer. During this time, Lauren participated in many group shows, winning various awards and exhibiting two solo shows, one at the Instituto Allende and the other at Bellas Artes.

When the digital revolution fully kicked in at the beginning of the 21st century, she grew weary of spending more and more time at the computer and began studying painting at the New York Studio School, The National Academy of Design and the Art Students league in NYC. Lauren loved the organic nature of painting and the fact that all her mark-making and painting gestures were coming directly from her body and not a machine.

For almost 15 years, she has dedicated herself to learning everything about the language of painting and has exhibited her work in NYC and in San Miguel. For her show at Casa Europa, she will be drawing on two different bodies of work, one based on her exploration of abstraction, reflecting her love of jazz improvisation and dance, and the other a series of floral imagery inspired by her garden and her love of all blooming things.

Richard Keene is an artist and designer who has lived in San Miguel for 30 years. His art emerges from an unconscious and visceral place. He creates unique reliquaries, altars, and paintings, drawing on the ephemera of everyday life. His use of nichos and boxes reflects his own love of building houses and filling them with his unique sense of design. For this exhibition, Richard will be showing work he has made over the past 10 years.

Mary Li moved to SMA five years ago from NYC. She began painting in 2008 after owning a furniture manufacturing company for 20 years in Northern California. She spent five years at the Art Students’ League in NYC, honing her craft. In her work, she synthesizes all her life experiences.

She is committed to revealing her own vision of truth and beauty: light and dark, the shadow world as well as the transcendent glory of this life. Life in all its terrible beauty seems to underlie her work.

It is a great pleasure for Casa Europa to host such a unique exhibition, on Thursday, March 15 at 7 pm, at San Francisco 23, Centro.
