Stark Realism is an exhibition of new paintings by Francien Krieg, Effie Pryer and Ville Löppönen. Each of these artists uses realism to explore the substance and mystery of being human. Krieg’s elderly nudes offer an unflinching but compassionate look at the effects of aging on women’s bodies and ask the viewer to consider the spirit within. Pryer’s portraits are inspired by her interest in mythologies of the world and the themes that resonate throughout human experience. And Löppönen uses religious iconography to depict our internal struggles. PRESS RELEASE
