Maegan Arthurs reviews an exhibition of paintings by Arden Bendler Browning at Bridgette Mayer Gallery, Philadelphia, on view through January 19, 2013.
Arthurs writes: "Bendler Browning sees a romance in the varying states of maintenance and decay throughout the urban scene. Her paintings convey an impression of the blurred images we casually observe while walking, biking or driving through the bustle of the city." She continues, noting Browning's "interest in the stark beauty of the cityscape juxtaposed with the dirt and grit of the street. In her works, there is a definite acknowledgement of, and perhaps affection for, this dichotomy."
