"The Reality of an Illusion: New works by Larissa Morais"

2008-02-07 until 2008-02-07
Christopher Morgan Galleries
Palm Desert, CA, USA United States of America

Beginning February 7, 2008, Christopher Morgan Galleries presents The Reality of an Illusion: New works by Larissa Morais. This exhibition is a collection of more than ten new original oil paintings by Larissa Morais. The subjects include mysterious figurative works, classic and tastefully done nudes, as well as dramatically realistic and larger than life floral subjects. Her masterful control of brushwork creates a new reality from the surface of her canvases. All her work is conceived from a sketch which she later paints onto a large black canvas. Her delicate technique is created with very thin layers of oil paint, while using the black background for subtle shading. She captures every detail of her subjects. For her, it is all there, she just uncovers it! Larissa Morais has been a Premiere Portfolio Member at absolutearts.com since 2005.

Morais favorite subject to paint is the human figure from which she brings a reality to the paintings where attention to detail is as strong as attention to the character of the model. In her artwork we are transported to a relaity of beautiful men and women, intimately poised and positioned.
