Meg Aubrey’s candy colored palette belies the loneliness, disquiet, and isolation she renders in her paintings of upscale suburban life. Manicured lawns in tree-lined neighborhoods imply a domestic ideal of beauty and security, but Aubrey suggests that acquiring and maintaining this pristine environment exacts a heavy price. These orderly landscapes mirrored by orderly interiors offer scant comfort for the anxiety of their inhabitants.
