In her exhibition, "Where You End and I Begin," Laura Lit creates portraits that capture the likeness, specific expression, and telling moments of her subjects. This series of oil paintings uses chiaroscuro and realistic detail to establish attitude and anatomy. Lit draws inspiration from a variety of sources including noir film, portrait and fashion photography, the work of Renaissance and Dutch masters, Surrealism, and psychology. Her work explores the battle between her subjects’ internal and external worlds, their sexuality, and sense of isolation.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 27.
