New art exhibit at Vastu featuring Cherie Lester and Emilie Keim

JANUARY 24, 2011 · POSTED IN ARTISTS
Vastu is pleased to welcome artists Cherie Lester and Emilie Keim.



Emilie Keim works with urban landscape and row-homes
of the neighborhoods around her. She is intrigued with painting
close-up views of backyards and rooms. Honest paint on board
and a blend of reality with abstract style makes her work
impressionistic, and comforting. Her color selection is exquisite.
This body of work documents the personal spaces,
domestic life and privacy within her home city, Philadelphia.





The recent works of Cherie Lester are inspired
by her many years of study of architectural elements.
These new abstract paintings are part of her continuing
series of textural, mixed media, decollaged works on
paper, wood and fabric. Comforting and strong,
these pieces offer strength and solidity, with wisps of
whimsy.
