The Lynden Gallery exhibition of artist Robin Jebavy includes just eight works, but they are big, often about the size of a door, so it doesn’t feel like a small show. She also has abundant technique, so the exhibit doesn’t lack for showmanship. Her paintings are often still lifes, concentrating on multiple glass objects, in a style that is dense and layered, capturing complicated reflections and points of light in works the Lynden exhibition calls “crystalline labyrinths.” The Dutch masters of the Baroque era have been a particular influence on her, Jebavy says (she describes her work as “neo-baroque”), but her work seems quite different in approach.

Jebavy’s father is an artist and art teacher. She was raised
