Ky Anderson: crested
Sep 15-Oct 27
Jack Fischer Gallery is pleased to present crested, a solo exhibition by Brooklyn based artist Ky Anderson. Showing for the first time at the gallery, Anderson will exhibit a series of recent abstract paintings and drawings. Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, September 15, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at our Potrero location. The exhibition will be up through October 27, 2018.
Anderson’s love of color and composition shows up in her work in such a way that we know instantly, as if by signature, that this is undoubtedly her voice and hand. Her palette alternates between warm yellows and browns to cooler blues, greens and grays. The overall effect of her paintings is a feeling of calmness and gratitude, a pervasive feeling of having entered a private, personal, and nurturing space. As the artist states: “My paintings and works on paper tell moments of an internal story. Each painting stands as evidence of the search, exploration and endless possibilities of shape, line and color which feed the conversation until a balance has been found.”
Many of her works contain solid shapes and arcing lines of different colors that seem to support or balance these structures. Chance and spontaneity are apparent with drips and splatters of paint. This lends the work immediacy and a lovely manner that makes us feel privy to the work of discovery.
