Artists’ Reception:  Saturday, May 31st , 5 – 8 pm

In
Still Places, Katherine Kean’s recent paintings of winding paths and bending waterways
explore illusive margins of atmosphere and form. Subtle edges of earth and water, tree and
sky, seem to dissolve and reappear, caught as she says, ”At the moment when boundaries are
undetermined and reality is malleable, like the point between dream and reality.”

Beginning with under-painting, Kean modulates the intensity of light that spreads from the
center of the canvas, while lines and shapes are defined and then partially obscured. Layer is
painted over layer, resulting in unexpected gradations and tones. Imagination’s alchemy
transforms the recognizable into delicately nuanced layers of color and tone, to gently invoke
mystery, sensation, and mood.
