Cosmic Hostess (a moniker that surely refers to the artist’s approach and not just her depictions of cupcakes) Lorraine Peltz serves up more daydreams and dance cards in her new works, all lush paintings with a feminine edge to counter the deceptive softness brought about through the fruit and flowers. Strolling legs are on a quest through supposed greener pastures and afternoon delights, while unfilled speech bubbles compete to fill unseen dance cards under a trio of ornate chandeliers. More bonbons are lurking at the artist’s new website.
Artist: Lorraine Peltz
Works by Lorraine Peltz can be seen at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago until March 25th.
