Art & Light Gallery is pleased to present “Outside In”, a solo exhibition of work by Greenville, S.C. artist Mimi Wyche, launching on the Art & Light website and in the gallery at 10am (EST) on Tuesday, October 31 with an opening reception on Friday, November 3 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM.
Mimi Wyche uses oil and cold wax medium to paint loose landscapes that hover somewhere in between representation and abstraction. Color and shape are driven by an emotional and internal response to lived experience, while representing a universal connection to the visual world. Wyche strives to connect the viewer to her deepest impulses and contradictions, using painting as a vehicle to express her desire to find a connection to the world at large.
Although Wyche’s education was focused on the visual arts, her creative life also included a career as an actor and singer. She lived in New York for twenty years and performed in venues from Broadway to Lincoln Center to the avant-garde scene of the East Village. During this time, she continued to study art and exhibit in New York. In recent years, painting emerged as Mimi’s singular creative passion, and she returned to its pursuit full time.
Wyche states, “The most powerful appeal in both the performing and visual arts has always been my connection with others. Whether exploring a character or expressing an inner world through imagery, little else equals the gratification of this shared experience.”
