Naya Bricher Takes It Easy
Aug 20, 2021
“Make It Easy on Yourself,” a show of new works by Naya Bricher, opens Friday, Aug. 20 at Four Eleven Gallery, 411 Commercial St. in Provincetown, and runs through Aug. 26. There will be an opening night reception from 7 to 9 p.m.
“Make it easy on yourself” is the line that Bricher repeats when life becomes overburdened and fraught. “This mantra, of sorts, reminds me that I can, we all can, pick the easier option, the choice with less resistance,” she says in a statement. It’s an affirmation of loving kindness that allows the painter to unleash on large canvases — a celebration of candy-coated color and pop imagery. The paintings evoke joyous abandon — a carnival of cuddly animals, princes and princesses, hot dogs, and cake. Beautifully painted with 1950s retro-charm, they’re a zesty antidote to everyday angst.
