Lorene Anderson’s Swirl and Roil at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts
‘s paintings have a kinetic energy perfectly fitting her exploration of turbulence, gesture, and the movement and folds of space. Her undulating stripes, dimensional layers, and selective use of reflective paint transforms a two-dimensional surface into a churning, vibrating composition. The dynamic nature of her pieces even suggest environments beyond the picture plane itself, her marks seemingly extending around and beyond the edges of her paintings.
Anderson’s work is a playful investigation of figure-ground and the relationship between positive and negative space. Her paintings, an example Spatial Redux, featured above, are hypnotizing, shifting from meditative tranquility to roiling chaos and back again. Exhibition runs through May 6th.
