      Press Release for immediate release: Maura Carta at Viewpoints Gallery, April 2019

      “Recent Works” by Maura Carta

      April 1 - 28, 2019
      Artist’s reception: Friday, April 5, 5-8pm
      Reception is free and open to the public

      Viewpoints Gallery is proud to present our April exhibition, featuring artist Maura Carta. Maura’s recent works in oil feature her eclectic assortment of landscapes, cityscapes, portraits and still-lifes. Working within the classical techniques of grisailles and layering, Maura’s paintings have a subtle glow to them. Her tromp l’oeils pop out, her portraits quietly gaze at you, and you can feel the soft sunlight in her landscapes.

      “Turning a blank canvas into my interpretation of the world around me continues to hold my attention. I redesign the cityscapes around me into purple and green and sunlit orange. I love the texture of paint, the feel of applying it to canvas, and the exercise of seeing the world around me in terms of shapes, values and colors.”

      Maura earned a Bachelors in Mathematics and was a pension actuary for ten years before pursuing painting. She attended the Hochschule fur Bildende Künste in Dresden, Germany from 1997- 2000 and now resides in the Bay Area.
