LOS ANGELES, CALFORNIA, USA, January 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Award-winning painter Moira Cue premiered her monumental, black and white abstract “Virtue Series” at the world-famous Bruce Lurie Gallery in Culver City, California on Saturday, January 6th, 2018, which will be extended one week after the LA Art Show with a closing night party. She next debuts several of the highly acclaimed works at the LA Art Show, at the Bruce Lurie Gallery Booth, #624, today; Friday, Junuary 12-14, 2018, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
International, acclaimed Dealer and Gallerist Bruce Lurie gave Jean-Michel Basquiat his first major gallery show in New York City. The Bruce Lurie Gallery was established in the early 1980’s in New York’s East Village. Bruce Lurie is widely known for launching emerging artists into the mainstream art scene, and in his early career gave Jean-Michel Basquiat his first show as requested by Leo Castelli. The Bruce Lurie gallery has since relocated to Los Angeles' Culver City Arts District. The gallery has a particular focus on establishing emerging to mid-career artists specializing in cutting edge street art, abstract minimalism, and pop art, with an additional recent focus on photography. The Bruce Lurie Gallery features a wide range of monumental sculptors as well.
Moira Cue's work is in the collection of pop star Madonna, as well as other prestigious homes and institutions. The Black and White Virtue Series is based on a single “virtuous” word translated into multiple languages via Google Translate. She also uses manual translations; including secret codes, extinct languages, and sign language, among more. Her new work addresses; duality, art and language, meaning versus meaninglessness, construction versus deconstruction, multiculturalism and communication, and the artist's own relationship with the philosophical orientation toward the good.
A fan of Franz Kline and Cy Twombly, Moira Cue attended the renown School of the Art Institute of Chicago, both as a graduate and undergraduate student. Moira appears prominently in press around the world, including on the front pages of major online tabloids reaching tens of millions of viewers, and has also made many appearances on television, and in numerous Hollywood films. Also a singer and songwriter, she has performed on stage at venues including; The Viper Room, The Knitting Factory, The Tempest, and The Mint, among others. Photographed regularly on the red carpet in Hollywood, Moira is also the founder of the Greater Los Angeles Indivisible Coalition.
