something about LINES
Works that explore the communicative power of line in art
First Tuesday ArtWalk Opening Reception:
* May 7, 5:30-7:30 pm
Artist Roundtable Dialogue:
* May 7, 4:00 pm
Exhibition dates: May 2 – 23
Ann O’Hanlon speaks of the five elements of composition in her book “seeing/perception”: Line, Area, Space, Color and the Human Psyche. All works contain, at some level, all five. For this show the focus is on the LINE: straight – curved, measured – random, long – short, heavy – light.
We invited artists to explore the communicative power of line in art: How they use the line in their art to communicate? Some well known artists who masterfully used the line: Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, Wassily Kandinsky.
Juror: Katy Kuhn
About Katy Kuhn in her own words: “I am a gestural abstract artist, taking my cue from nature. My work is at once personal and universal, like looking out a window and seeing life through my own point of view, but knowing others will have their own unique response. I am particularly influenced by the colors and energy of nature and the ever-changing environment. Line, color, shape, and movement all invoke feelings, daydreams, longings, and collective memories. In working abstractly the work is never fixed, but dynamic—one can see infinite relationships.
“My paintings are organic, yet honed: Spontaneity and energy are just as important as deliberation, composition and application of materials. In working large, I realize the reach of my own physicality and fully immerse myself into each work of art. Look closely, and step back too. It is paint after all; but the fact that its application onto a single surface can reach the deepest part of our psyches is nothing short of a miracle and I long to be part of that transcendent experience.”
