A new exhibition, Double Vision, will showcase the work of Cate Leach of Darien and Paul Larson of Greenwich at the Art/Place Gallery, 70 Sanford Street in Fairfield through Nov. 16.

A public reception and artist talks will take place on Sunday, Oct. 19 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Exploration is the common thread in the visionary work of both abstract artists. Ms. Leach’s art stems from a deep desire to understand the pulse and rhythm of the natural world. Through painting, printmaking and assemblage she explores her subject, choosing the medium which best expresses the mood she wants to convey.

“Increasingly I find that combining these mediums with digital technology further extends my range of expression. Using overlaid transparencies of photographs of my paintings and collage, I have discovered a new way to realize my vision,” Ms. Leach said.

Mr. Larson’s paintings often depict the highly stylized figure, usually set within a similarly stylized landscape. At once industrial, sensual, and spiritual, his work features the cubist influenced use of geometric form, the illusion of overlapping and intersecting planes, improbable perspectives, and subtle transitions of tonal passages that tend to tease the eye. “

My work represents a personal exploration into alternate views of the world, inviting reflection, prompting potential insight, memory, and emotion of the viewer,” Mr. Larson said.

Art/Place is open Wednesday through Saturday, 12 to 4 p.m., and Sunday, 2 to 5 p.m., in a building shared by the Fairfield Theatre Company. 203-292-8328. More information is available at Artplace.org.
