Pearl Van Geest
The Brink

January 26 - March 1, 2017


Over the years, Pearl Van Geest has amassed a collection of images – personal photographs of random events, travels, concerts, visits to galleries, etc; clippings from newspapers and magazines; movie stills; exhibition cards and screen shots from Internet searches. In The Brink, her first exhibition at Coldstream Fine Art, Pearl paints interpretations of some of these images, all, she suggests, poised at the edge where progress from moment to moment appears to be suspended, and where a shift, change, transformation, new beginning or disaster is perhaps imminent.
