Gwen O'Neil Over the Ridges and through the Passes

May 11 — Jun 14, 2024 | Paris, Turenne (Front Space)

Opening on Saturday, May 11, 2024 from 6 to 8 pm

Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to announce Over the Ridges and through the Passes, Gwen O’Neil's first solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from May 11 to June 14, 2024.

“Over the ridges and through the passes,” Gwen O’Neil’s first exhibition with Almine Rech presents a series of new paintings inspired by unique weather and light conditions endemic to southern California. Like many West Coast-based artists—notably those associated with the Light and Space movement such as Larry Bell, Mary Corse, and Dewain Valentine—O’Neil seeks to capture the combination of natural and artificial factors responsible for southern California’s dramatic environment. Acknowledging that the fiery sunsets and hazy glow associated with Los Angeles are largely the result of air pollution, O’Neil’s paintings are as foreboding as they are dazzling.

— Mara Hoberman, art critic
