Kyla Rafert OpeningSaturday, November 19, 6 p.m. Richard J Demato Fine Arts Gallery, 90 Main Street, Sag Harbor
There will be plenty of pre-holiday cheer as the gallery welcomes its newest addition, Kyla Rafert. “I see my current work as the truth bent to perfection,” Rafert says in her artist’s statement. “Set within a meticulously designed world of vanity, beauty, intense color and abundant pattern, recent works evoke a carefully crafted stage rather than the happenstance of real life. Echoing fairy tales, Dutch genre paintings of the 17th century, and overly sentimental 19th century literature, these paintings illustrate adolescent girls and young women in scenes that play on Romantic notions such as the peril of curiosity, the potency of beauty, and the inevitable fall of innocence.”
