May 16 2017 just an update

On May 6th went to see Matisse/Diebenkorn exhibition at the sfmoma/enamored with the color – of interest their palettes which I find to be quite amazing/ might borrow to provide some limitations…one statement I read was that Diebenkorn had completed 66 large scale paintings in about a year and a half. To me that’s unbelievable/ but doesn’t mean it is not true!!! Just very difficult to imagine.

I also spent time with Larry Sultan’s Here and Home exhibition at the same museum – overwhelmed with feeling when I viewed his ‘family photos’ and his large scale renditions of the same . I guess because they just felt so ‘real’ and ‘genuine’/ but I actually don’t know if that was it – (also very southern california feeling which i love/ I could have stayed with them all day)

now so looking forward to the edvard munch works coming in June/ a fav

So beginning new series, appropriating color from diebenkorn (thereby matisse?) for now …interesting experiment …next will it be pantone color swatches? haha we’ll see . This is my summer work/ largest one will be 4 x 5’

Here is my initial search for color:

Happy New Year! January 1 2017

Happy New Year! January 1 2017
Sending my wishes for each of you to experience all you ever dream of.

I am so pleased to receive this installation photo of one of my paintings – it came to my email just over a week ago. A great way to greet the new year. The title is “Random Acts: My Piece of the Sky” from my Random Acts series where I explore apparently random markmaking to experience a sense of order or poetic meaning which is also expressed through the title.

Now to sit down and review my NY resolutions for 2017 – one is to update more often here in WordPress. So stay tuned.

Golden Thread by Kathryn Arnold, Mixed Media on Paper, 60 x 115 inches.

I have been working on some black and white works on paper and will put together a gallery soon.

This work – 60 inches high by 115  inches wide  – actually I began this a little while ago but feel like  it is now ready to view.

The title is Golden Thread and it is mixed media on paper with collage. It has some embedded paper cranes with a string of golden thread and subtle words.

 

My work is currently installed at the Ritz-Carlton at Lake Tahoe. August 2016 – October 2016. Here are some installation photos.
