Abend Gallery and Sugar Cube are proud to present a solo exhibition, “After Dark”, by the contemporary realism artist, Lindsey Kustusch.
This artist’s most recent series captures the urban landscape in its finest hour—the nighttime hustle. Rain or shine, the city bustles with energy, illuminating the air with fluorescent potential. Just like the essence of art itself, the evening hours offer the spectator a chance to see the world differently, where the urban landscape is not only a home, but a place of infinite creative interpretation.
“There’s a sense of magic and a feeling of possibility. The darkness of night is not the end of a day, but merely the beginning,” Kustusch explains. As the artist explores the extraordinary qualities of city-dwelling after dark, visitors to the exhibit will be able to delight in the romance of her visual language: the sun rays set behind an evening sky obscured by the prism of neon lights, store windows, and an endless sea of dwellings, unveiling a landscape lit by the glow of millions.
Lindsey shares her fascination with viewing the city through the lens of the present moment, “Our time is what we make of it, and the city is an ever-evolving and mesmerizing reminder of exactly that, especially after dark.”
So as a loyal city dweller, and a lifetime animal lover and advocate, Kustush’ s ambition is to capture the fleeting moments in life, using her medium as an opportunity to see the world with a more interesting and colorful perspective. Translating her day-to-day experiences, the emotional connection to those memories, as well as exploring the beauty of nature through animal portraiture and plein air painting has become the sole drive of everything that she creates.
Lindsey Kustusch is an oil painter based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. She has been exhibiting nationally since 2009, and has works in numerous private collections. Kustusch has also recently begun teaching classes and workshops at Sadie Valerie Atelier in San Francisco.
