The intimacy of loss and grief, the overwhelming presence of absence, is understood through Rebecca Butterworth’s body of paintings and mixed media installations, We’ll Always Be Together. Through changes of scale and the use of intimate space, Butterworth engages the audience in evaluating their own experiences with death, discussing what is left behind in physicality and memory.

In Audrey LeFlore’s series of oil paintings, I love you. I’m glad I exist., she explores the ephemeral, inspired by the use of photography in the everyday. Intimate compositions and the blur of motion aim to invite the viewer to enter the picture plane and experience the painted moment through the artist’s perspective.
