JED WILLIAMS GALLERY is excited to present its new exhibit, a solo showcase of painter Lois Schlachter. Lois Schlachter's work has an exuberant flow to it, with colors that are luscious and often pastel-like. Her unique abstracts have a meticulously composed, clean feel to them, which goes hand in hand with a wonderful sense of whimsy and a mellifluous, subtle color schemes. The distinctive geometric shapes set off eternally revolving fractal-like hues. According to Schlachter, “her paintings at Jed Williams Gallery are examples of her love of geometric shapes and bold vibrant color. These pieces were created by letting her subconscious mind guide her hand. She works directly on the canvas, continually drawing throughout the painting process. The use of line and color help to navigate the viewer across the canvas providing an avenue to discover one fun spot after another.”
