March solo artist Alyse Radenovic employs multifold vertical lines in an array of colors for the 11 works featured in her solo exhibit Lines in Color. Each painting is an elaborate yet streamlined nexus of consonant and dissonant color combinations, creating harmonious statements from the interconnection of disparate hues. Each composition is a rich and unified tapestry, at once dynamic and serene. Lines of Color is on view through April 7.
