AP-118-Untitled-City-From-Above Painting by Alexandra Pacula Painting by Alexandra Pacula painting by Alexandra Pacula

Alexandra Pacula’s first solo show at Gallery Henoch, Luminous Heights, will run October 2 – 25, 2014. An opening reception for the artist will be held Thursday, October 2, 6-8pm. The event is free and open to the public.

Polish-born, New York-based artist Alexandra Pacula (b. 1979) paints large-scale works exploring the dynamic energy of cities at night. Pacula simulates the city’s turbulent nocturnal energy with a lexicon of marks all her own; her virtuosic brushwork, vibrant color and fluid gestures transform moving cars into glossy bands of red, while swishy circles become reflective air ducts that sit atop squares of black rooftops. Lines of yellow zigzags mimic the time-lapse vision of the viewer’s own movement, and capture a kind of elusive, frenetic energy that powers the city.
