Josette Urso's New Paintings on View in New York

Treehouse, a solo exhibition featuring new paintings by Josette Urso will be on view at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, New York.

Josette’s works have densely packed surfaces of delicate marks, swirling brushstrokes and blocks of vivid color. Her abstractions reference landscape, still life, and views of New York City where she lives.

An intuitive painter, Josette explores our perceptions of time and space. The works “seek to reflect multiple moments occurring at once in order to comment on a live experience. An endless stream of information is constantly projected at a person from all directions; Urso’s work acts as a filtering of the physical, thoughtful, auditory, visual and even technological stimuli that we interact with at any point in time.”

Josette received her MFA in Painting from the University of South Florida in Tampa. Her work has been exhibited widely including the New York Public Library, The Drawing Center, and the Bronx Museum for the Arts. She has been awarded numerous grants and residencies, in particular, from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation as well as the Camargo Foundation and Yaddo.
