Dirk de Bruycker: Luster IV 1993, mixed media collage
LewAllen Galleries, 1613 Paseo de Peralta, 505-988-3250 The gallery presents a major survey of the career of Belgian-born artist Dirk de Bruycker (1955-2015). The exhibit includes early works with iconography appropriated from 17th- and 18th- century watermarks. Paintings from the 1990s, inspired by the idea of the memento mori, a visual representation of death imbued with moral and spiritual significance, are also included. These reflect the artist’s interest in the transitory nature of life. The reception is Friday, Feb. 26, at 5 p.m.
