Kitty Klaidman Salt Spring Island: Beneath the Surface #26
Mixed media on wood panel
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.
