Careful Foresters, New Paintings by Ky Anderson at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

by | Nov 17, 2019 | Blog post

Kathryn Markel is pleased to present Careful Foresters, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Ky Anderson. This marks the artist’s second solo exhibition with Kathryn Markel Fine Arts.

In “Careful Foresters” Ky Anderson channels the primitive origins of drawing with a serene palette and simple shapes, and she constructs compositions that are not quite symmetric, but beautifully balanced. Floating layers of color and texture evoke a sense of intuition and unplanned, instinctual mark making. Over time her process has evolved from a reliance on narrative reference and storytelling towards a more instinctual, abstract language of form. Painted overlays and textural patterns act as signs and signifiers, crafting constructions of painted language that form expressive and potent visual poetry.

The Exhibition is ongoing through November 30th.
