Precarious Magic

Kate Emlen MFA’77 will be showcased in Precarious Magic, through April 7th. Her Greensboro, VT exhibition features her Vermont and costal Maine paintings, skillfully melting the natural light and dark forests and ocean together. As Emlen states:

“When I’m working, I’m not thinking. I let the rhythms within take over. When I stand back from the painting I look for motion of composition, the play of space and counterspace, the weight of color and how all these elements influence one another. A painting is complete when I can feel it is moving and breathing as a whole. This is the wonderful mystery I look for in every painting: the mystery of natural rhythms taken into the rhythm of paint.”
