While exploring Artsy this morning, I stumbled upon Mira Hecht’s kaleidoscopic patterns. Her line work has a softness that’s distinctly abstract in comparison to the mathematic perfection of computer animated art. The dream-like quality and defined color palettes have craft roots in African, Asian and Middle Eastern arts blending cultures, moods and references. “Inspired by glimpses of perfection within the mind’s eye, each painting is meant to be a small gesture of exhalation, pointing to joy, connection and wholeness,” Hecht says. The works are currently on display through March in Washington, D.C. at the Addison Ripley Find Art Gallery. Pop in for a visit if you’re in and around the Dupont area!
