Rebis: New Paintings by Virginia DerryberryJanuary 01, 2008 - February 01, 2009
United Company Contemporary Regional Art Gallery
Rebis includes 17 paintings by Virginia Derryberry, an Asheville, NC artist and Professor of Art at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. Her large compositions fuse realism and portraiture with mythic content and alchemical symbolism. Her classically composed paintings include symbolic objects, colors, and narratives associated with alchemy but are not easily recognized to the unknowing eye. In this way, Derryberry’s paintings are as much about realistic painting and classical themes as they are about alchemical subjects.
