Shirley Rabe’ Masinter continues her tradition of applying her vivid hyper-realist aesthetic to New Orleans inner-city scenes. Her paintings capture the unique character of the city through its architecture, its corner stores, bars and shotgun houses. These works are not literal “slices of life” captured at random on the city streets; instead, each is a “synthesis or construction that gives my representation of the places depicted.”
Shirley Rabe’ Masinter was raised in New Orleans, receiving a BFA from Newcomb College and an MA in Art History from Tulane University. Her work is represented in numerous private, public and museum collections, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Mississippi Museum of Art and the Huntsville Museum of Art.
