Laura Rathe Fine Art will present "Lyrical Moments," a two-woman exhibition featuring new works by Carly Allen Martin and Nina Tichava.

"Lyrical Moments" offers viewers a glimpse into stories behind a curated group of dynamic paintings, exemplifying imaginative and lyrical expression. Layering details over time, both artists use moments of creativity and inspiration to generate autobiographical and visually complex artworks.

The Dallas-based Martin juxtaposes careful placement of lines and gestural moments of color, which allows one to get lost in subtle textural nuances hidden within every brushstroke. She lays each work on the floor and begins spontaneously mark making, only to then pause to reflect on her next step. In layering these moments of quietude, she captures bursts of movement and suspends harmonies in their stillness, developing a timeline of rich details that form each painting’s story.

Inspired by nature, architecture, and textiles, Tichava relies on processes of layering and intricate patterning. While Tichava’s work is seemingly geometric, dominated by leitmotifs of circles across parallel and intersecting lines, upon closer inspection, each painting is rendered organic and delicate by the underlying texture. Her unique system of collaged dots punctuate her pieces with a three-dimensional quality, drawing viewers even closer to appreciate every moment.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 2.
