    Art on 5th: Alone Together

    Cynda Valle creates luminous portraits using an antiquated technique of oil glazing and tempera paints, building up the surface of the canvas with more than 30 translucent layers, working at it as if she were possessed by the ghost of Hannes Bok. And the results are often astonishingly beautiful.
