Karlene McConnell Opening Reception
May 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“I take into consideration the tradition of landscape painters before me and those who experimented with color fields, line and space. My love of the landscape has led to an affinity for both tonal and abstract expressionistic styles. Trees, vegetation, rocks, water and sky represent constancy. These subjects are abstracted by drawing lines and organic forms with my brush, pulling elements to the surface and pushing them back down under layers of paint. Horizon lines and trees may appear and then be obliterated by color. In my most recent series, I explore the areas between the trees. The negative space becomes positive and adds to the sense of place.”
Karlene McConnell has a strong background in art education and is currently a full time artist. She has shown in galleries from Florida to NY and her exhibit, The Sparrow, will be on display at Frame of Mind Art Gallery through the month of May. Meet the artist at the opening reception held on May 5th.
