Desta Gallery is thrilled to announce, “Forces of Nature,” a solo exhibition of new work by Katheryn Holt, on view from April 12 to May 21. An artist reception will be held on April 16, from 4 pm to 6 pm.
Katheryn explores our interconnectedness with our surrounding environment in this new series of works.
Environmental information cycles through us daily, informing us about ourselves and our relationship with the surrounding natural world. In painting these atmospheric works on panel, I continue a dialogue about such things with myself.
Transitioning hues of oil color drift across and down the panels to disappear behind horizons, falling into land and sea. The air is water, and water becomes air.
The illusion of evaporation and condensation hangs in a horizontal balance above and below, only to be contained by landmass capturing its elusive shadows of light and color at the outer edges of the compositions. Dark rises to light and the light returns into the motion of tidal flow, and shoreline breaks at the water’s edge.
