Press Release

Elegance or exuberance, stability or change, structure or chaos—in a new exhibition, artist Pauline Rakis invites us to find meaning in contrasts through vivid, emotion-imbued paintings of wine bottles and flowers.


“With their sleek lines and cool glass, wine bottles embody a stoic elegance,” Rakis explains. “They stand as witnesses to moments shared, their forms reminiscent of stability and tradition, yet within them lie vitality and celebration. By contrast, flowers represent transience. Through the chaos of their forms and the riot of their colors, they also reflect the vibrancy and volatility of life itself—spontaneity and raw emotion.”
