On view January and February, 2023
Edgewater Gallery at the Falls, One Mill Street, Middlebury
This month Sara Katz introduces a new collection of abstract paintings based on an exploration of botanical forms. Katz was raised in Cabot Vermont on a vegetable farm with a greenhouse and nursery and therefore often returns to the study of plant life which is both a familiar and important theme in her life. In this series the forms dance with bold colors and dynamic compositions filled with movement and energy.
“The garden is a setting I turn to for contemplation and revisit often as a subject in my work. Intuition almost always takes the lead at a point in my process: a series of layers, color and marks, blending memory with the moment through the physical act of mark-making. In this series, I am releasing the recognizable sooner than I have before–blurring the distinction between the figure and ground and dropping all references to perspective and the horizon. Botanical forms reassuringly repeat themselves throughout the natural world. A painting can connect a viewer to reality and an inner landscape simultaneously, offering a proxy for a memory.” – Sara Katz
