Boston area artist Lindsey Kocur explores interior and exterior landscapes in graphic architectural paintings. These mixed media works were part of her MFA thesis “Interiority Complex,” exhibited when she graduated from Tufts University in partnership with the School of Museum of Fine Arts. (I actually discovered Kocur’s work at the SMFA Art Sale in 2012).
She says about her work, “Elements of idealistic contemporary living spaces blend with references to past architectural movements to highlight social issues surrounding structural design that persist today.” Kocur sources highly staged images online and from magazines. Her hope is that her hand-painted boards “reveal a human quality” as juxtaposed against the glossy, flawless interior photography.
Several of Kocur’s architectural paintings and drawings is currently on display (until this Thursday, April 24th) in “Prompt” at 13 Forest Gallery on Mass. Ave. in Arlington. The gallery also carries a fantastic selection of gorgeous handmade jewelry by Boston designers and others, as well as those lovely ceramic birds by Cathy Moynihan I featured in December.
