Orange and a Half and Saw Horse, artworks featured in Kathleen Craig's On the Mezzanine

MARCH 15 – APRIL 27, 2019

Kathleen Craig plunges the viewer into a world of abstract realism in which objects, places and figures are recognizable, but color and composition play a predominant role. Abstraction allows her to express her love of play and her delight in color and shape. Through both painting and collage, Craig invites a sense of joy and delight.

Craig believes that nameable elements such as trees, tables, and animals help the painting with its primary job of communication. “I want to enjoy my work, but I also want anybody – with or without experience in the arts – to get it. I don’t want to make the viewer worry about what they are supposed to be seeing.”
