Bisong Art Gallery is pleased to announce the opening reception of Urban Playground, new works by artist Lauren Luna in what will be Luna’s first solo gallery exhibition since her move to Houston nine years ago. Urban Playground includes fourteen brand new oil works on canvas.
Known as “Your City Painter”, Luna seeks to demonstrate the importance of the outside world in everyone’s lives, while simultaneously showcasing the hidden and well known parks within our city of Houston. Ranging from Hermann Park, to Emancipation Park, to parks only existing in her head, Luna “Houston-izes” each location making it feel like home. In a style of painting, not unlike Vincent Van Gogh, Luna uses a palette knife to create heavily textured pieces that demonstrate her skill as a colorist, and in one & two- point perspective.
Luna states that, “Urban Playground; hidden amongst the iron trees in the heart of the concrete jungle, are the hidden gems; a location for humans to pause their robotic, repetitive, digital lives and reconnect with those basic elements makes us human; social interactions, fresh air, and the sun.”
