Opening on November 10, Illumination, showcases the paintings of Amy Hahn, who studied at the Florence Academy of Art and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Robert Lange Studios introduces the first-time Charleston artist with her show featuring a series of ten paintings that explore a unique perspective of the rich atmosphere created at dusk over Florence and Rome.
On view through mid December, the exhibit is the Chicagoland native’s first showing of work in the historic French Quarter district of downtown Charleston. A festive reception open to the public will be held on November 10, 2006 starting at 6 p.m. featuring wine, hors d’oeuvres, and music.
“Amy’s combination of training has given her a unique style of painting,” said gallery owner Robert Lange. “Her work is completely different than anything else in Charleston right now.”
Hahn’s exhibition depicts one-of-a-kind nighttime moments created from images captured while attending the Florence Academy of Art two years ago. The focus in her series lies within the gleam of lights and their reflections, which tell a story that is both serene and chaotic at the same time. Her paintings offer a personal interpretation of being surrounded at nightfall by shimmering light and enchanting energy that exists as the Italian sunsets.
“Through these paintings, I hope to share the sensation of traveling through a familiar yet foreign urban landscape,” says Hahn. “I want to offer the viewer an opportunity to be entranced by the subtle electricity of the atmosphere and completely engulfed in a shared experience.”
Recently, Hahn debuted her first solo show at La Galerie Bleue in Savannah. She has won numerous awards over the past five years and has paintings in private collections throughout the United States and Europe.
