The Wasp in the Garden at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Wasp in the Garden, Marilla Palmer’s third solo show with the gallery.

There is an inextricable connection between nature and the work of Marilla Palmer in inspiration, process, and concept. Her mixed media pieces blur the distinction between the organic and artifice, using dried foliage and scavenged detritus alongside synthetic materials to enrich rendered paintings of branches and flowers.

In Palmer’s studio, leaves and petals that have been gathered from her garden are pressed, wings are collected from dead insects, and mushrooms are gathered to make spore prints. These elements sneak into the work among drawn shadows of branches and watercolor florals, often nearly undetectable until after careful inspection. Then, Palmer brings a touch of glamour with lush fabrics, sequins, and glitter, adding a celebratory level of additional beauty.

Please see the companion exhibit The Hot House curated by Marilla Palmer.

On View January 4th – February 10th, 2018
