Victoria Gitman: Desiring Eye

The exhibition features 19 works drawn from four phases in the artist's career, spanning 14 years of highly disciplined production. Set against shallow backgrounds of neutral color, Gitman’s depictions of necklaces, beaded purses, and fur purses make a powerful impact that belies their small scale and banal subject matter. The artist paints the images from items that she finds in thrift stores, flea markets, and online sources for vintage accessories. In Gitman’s hands, these inexpensive objects are transmuted into things of beauty, exuding luxury and refinement.
