Taking on the dichotomy between nature's inherent behavior and man's challenges to it, Brooklyn-based artist Julie Combal draws on "the historical tradition of oil painting" to create beautiful works that toe the line between abstraction and landscapes.
Her contemplative works perfectly compliment the Alliance for the Artsâ upcoming Friends of the Arts Party, which will display Combal's paintings alongside other artists in a silent auction benefiting the cultural community. Hosted by Christie's, attendees will also receive an exclusive preview of the auction house's major Latin American Art sale.
The emerging artist hopes her work and the art of 16 others such as David Szydlowski, Ula Einstein, Sandro Diani and photographer Kiritin Beyer, will encourage a younger generation to become more deeply involved in arts advocacy.
