Art LTD – Critic’s Picks: SF Bay Area
In his second solo show at Dolby Chadwich Gallery, Tom Lieber explores the sense of place with his trademark aesthetic. Lieber’s new paintings highlight the duality of his life between Kaua’i and Los Angeles. Observations of natural grown during long walks in Kaua’i manifest themselves through jostling line work, and life in Los Angeles has created luminous hazes punctuated by distinctly urban colors.
