Earth to Sky

A solo exhibition by UH Art & Art History professor, Debra Drexler, at the Van Der Plas Gallery in New York, NY

March 29 – April 16, 2017

“Commuting between Hawaiʻi and New York, Debra Drexler thrives on living at the edge of two oceans. Hawaiʻi has a unique form of tropical light diffused through blazing skies, resplendent with colors so intense that they can seem almost synthetic. New York has its own urban pulse with twenty-four seven illumination, flashing the frenetic energy of a city in constant motion. Luminosity and movement permeate Drexler’s large, abstract canvases, with vibrant, electric color. Her work is equally informed by these two opposite geographies combining the sublime natural beauty of Hawaiʻi with the diverse dynamism of New York. The connection exists through light and color of one earth and one sky.”
