“Organic Metropolis” is a collaborative exhibition of two different genres by two diverse artists. Yuko Ike, a painter, and Lucienne Buckner, a sculptor, will combine, contrast and collaborate their talents in a "dual solo" show. The exhibit will run from May 6 through June 11 in the Loft Artists Association East Gallery at 575 Pacific Street in Stamford, CT. An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday May 6, from 6 to 8 pm.
Buckner and Ike define their exhibit: “Think humans are overtaking nature? Think again! Nature finds its way back into the heart and soul of the city in “Organic Metropolis.”
Yuko Ike addresses the concept of the organic metropolis with impressionistic cityscapes as serene and vibrant as the nature scapes of John Henry Twachtman and Patrick George. She seeks to capture a moment in the ever changing organic world.
Lucienne Buckner’s work embodies the same concept but from an inside out point of view. She imagines nature’s invasion of the objects typical of interior design and urban living with a surrealist flavor.
