OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 5-8 PM
Philip Slein Gallery is pleased to present, in her first St. Louis exhibition, a noted painter, of whom Time Out New York says:
"Belag is a veteran abstractionist who has been working in New York for 35 years. She's an unabashed colorist whose paintings can be described with one word: Bold. Bold colors, bold compositions and bold gestural marks are the defining features of her approach to paint, which she applies to her canvases with rags and knives as well as brushes. She's waging a one-artist war against a 'chromo-phobic' culture, as she calls it, in which good taste masks a fear of color's emotional impact on viewers. Judging from her work, it's a battle she aims to win."
