Excerpt from an online review of Rites of Passage, January 2010.
"Upon entering the gallery there was several large pieces that grabbed my attention. However, since I am particularly interested in fabrics, I gravitated towards Laurie Lee-Georgescu’s Untitled painting installation. Three large sheer rectangular pieces of fabric suspended one behind the other from the ceiling almost reaching to the floor. Treated with dye or paint, I am unsure. The color took on a very non objective form of vibrant reds, blues and yellows. Lee-Georgescu then seemingly went in with a brush and painted the most beautiful and delicately sparse areas of crisp lines. The piece has a very unassuming presence at first. Because of the sheerness the size does not draw you. There is no visual weight to the color necessarily. It is the delicate nature of the treatment of the cloth that draws you in and begs you to look for more. The boldness of color in certain areas counterbalance the softness of others and the treatment of the painted lines move you all over the composition." -Jeremy H. Polk
