Kathryn Arnold, Detail of Life in the Grid

"Life in the Grid" detail, kathryn arnold

Well, I finally did it, created a set of paintings (from last year) which are a momentary departure from color. Taking some cues from Robert Ryman and then intentionally incorporating these softly glowing pastels traditionally considered nonserious (pinks, lemon yellows, baby blues, and lime greens) it has opened up my palette in a way I have not experimented with before. Extremely subtle. The markmaking and process are still there, just presented in a more minimalistic way.

I hope you can make it to the reception if you are in San Francisco. It happens Wednesday April 27, 2011 from 5:30 – 7:30. My work (9 paintings/oil on canvas) is housed on the 6th floor, address 2356 Sutter Street, cross street is Divisidero. They are part of a group exhibition titled “Serenity” cuated by McKinley Art Solutions held at UCSF National Center for Excellence in Women’s Health on floors 3,4,5,6,7. You can also visit the works almost anytime if you cannot make it to the reception. Just walk into the building and go up the elevator. I would love to see you there!
