In this vital exhibition, every canvas becomes an event, a theme of oppositions, as the road and the countryside are manifested in energetic brushwork and confrontation between abstraction and representation.

"Lockpez's paintings embody the current circumstances in the Catskills in which the dynamic uncertainties of modern life penetrate an idyllic landscape. The scenes evoke the tension that exists between the speed of change so characteristic of contemporary life and an enduring desire for stability. The paintings hold these opposed values in equilibrium so that her latest work captures an exhilarating sense of space and movement within its affirmation of the timeless beauty of nature."
— Professor Hertha Schulze, Barnard University.

In this exhibition, "The Last Barn," I continue paying tribute to symbols of farm life, which I began in my previous show, entitled "The Noble Barn," where I explored the relationship between the simplicity of man-made barns and the rugged, textural irregularity of the natural world. The barns are depicted in diverse settings, seasons, and counties, and speak of individuality and the stamp of ownership.

I use the quality of light in my pieces as a mediator to dramatize the architecture and fuse the barns with the natural world. In some paintings, like the "Hay Barn," juxtaposition and symbiosis is very present. The landscape is the source of the hay while the barn serves to meet human needs furthering mutual beneficial co-existence. In other paintings, red architecture intrudes in a muscular fashion into the blue calming softness of the sky, while still others show the old barns echoing the contour of the mountains. In restraining the voluptuous landscape, I use it as a counterpoint to communicate the barns' submission to nature. In this exhibition, the barns' endurance, with its markings of age as it begins to break down, humanizes its own shape, making us feel that we belong to something larger than ourselves; that we are part of something that goes on forever.
