KITTY KLAIDMAN:
BENEATH THE SURFACE

SaltSprings26, Klaidman

Salt Spring Island: Beneath the Surface #26
2011
Mixed media on wood panel

Exhibition Overview

Recent mixed media paintings by Washington, D.C., artist Kitty Klaidman. In these paintings, richly colored acrylic pigment is applied on wood panels covered with molding paste that has been incised with organic patterns. They are then highly glazed. The over-all effect is to make explicit the subtle rhythms and tensions in seemingly static natural settings.
