Exhibition Review: Katie Kirk, "Parts and Motions" (Maake Magazine)

“Walking into Parts and Motions, a solo show of new works by Katie Kirk, you begin with a lone small painting hanging almost surreptitiously to the left… The main space proposes a world where the divisions of drawing, painting, and sculpture are fluid and where the acts of making are interchangeable… As a material lover, I really gravitated close to each piece.  Standing nose to surface, it was a pleasure to stay with one and dig into the drips, the ‘paint skins’, the rubbings, drawings, twists in clay, and glaze…” - Christina Han for Maake Magazine

Featured Artist on Artsy: JANN POLLARD

Open Mind Art Space is pleased to present our new featured artist, Jann Pollard.  A collection of her beautiful paintings can be viewed exclusively on our Artsy page.

Frequent trips to Europe enable Jann to capture the feeling and sense of the subjects she paints with a fresh vibrant handling of the medium. Light and texture are primary to her compositions in which she captures the essence and feeling of the many places seen and travelled.

"My love of art and travel, combined with a study of old world architecture is a never-ending inspiration for me. I see light, color, shapes and a moment in time that evoke a feeling that I want to capture in my paintings." - Jann Pollard
