October 2015 - January 2016. NEW WORK is an exhibit of recent landscapes and abstracts by James Kurella, held at Powell Fitness in Powell Ohio. A collection of 16 pieces showcasing the artist's exploration of landscape over the past year.
James spent the majority of 2015 learning how to approach landscape painting by viewing and experiencing the varied nuance of nature. From workshop classes, to studio study, to plein air exploration, James combines a new love for the grandeur of nature with his love of abstraction, creating energetic and exciting vistas for the eye to explore. James balances this new exploration with recent abstract work, providing a counterpoint to the landscape study, showcasing the artists growth.
The show is on display at Powell Fitness, Powell Ohio, through January 2016.
