Pastel by Kathy Moberg

 

 

What a journey it has been! I have painted for fifty years now and each painting is still a new adventure…a mystery to be solved. My work evolves in layers of texture and color. Sometimes I paint from life or from a series of sketches or photos letting my imagination take hold from there.

A specific style is not something I worked to develop but came quite naturally. I have a light touch and rather loose stroke. My mantra is, ‘Every stroke affects every other stroke, every line affects every other line, every color affects every other color’. I approach painting from a more abstract, broader perspective, and work the entire canvas at once rather than small areas at a time. The first layer is usually painted in watercolor using the compliment in the following layers of pastel, often letting the watercolor show through to build continuity throughout the work.

 

One of my favorite quotes by Marc Chagall is “If I create from the heart everything works: if from the head, almost nothing works.”

Since the mid 80’s I have been painting with a community of women artists. Some women have left our group, and others have continued through the years, opening their arms and hearts to newcomers. In turn, they instill new and fresh ideas. We share our lives, our hopes, our aspirations…and our art. Painting connects us. These women sustain my art. My inspiration is enhanced by their physical presence…coming together to paint. Their mentoring spirit, their tenacity and perseverance gives me the boost I need to press on. This spiritual presence carries me through the slumps and the moments of self-doubt.

These women create a momentum for me. They offer themselves to the nurturing of art, and in so doing enrich my life.   Kathy Moberg

“The works included in this exhibit use either new materials or methods and techniques to amplify the meaning in the content of their art. Adding or embedding new materials to the surface creates surprise, and occasionally, deeper interpretation and understanding of the subject.” –Agnes Field

 

 

October  exhibit includes Leah Kohlenberg, Kathy Moberg and Carmela Newstead.

“Cauldron” by Leah Kohlenberg

 

Leah Kohlenberg,  artist statement:

I have been drawing and painting for 18 years, but the work you see today is entirely new for me.

These pastels and oil paintings are inspired by the Oregon coast, but the colors are wild and bright (sometimes wacky) and the land forms are intentionally abstract. This is to allow some of the raw brushwork and initial power that comes from an artistic first impression. It’s also an attempt to share the more vibrantly colorful world that’s in my head onto the canvas.

I started painting in my 30s, so have always had a sense of being “behind” – there were people who’d been doing art much longer than me, who knew more about the craft than I, who were way better artists than I. As I practiced my skills, I also did a lot of painting over my first attempts until I made the work “correct.”

My lack of confidence resulted in a stuttering “over-painting” that could lose the initial rawness and beauty of the initial strokes. I sometimes missed what I had created in the first pass, and at the same time, I didn’t trust it.

Now 18 years later, this series is an attempt to trust and honor that first pass. You are the first people to see these works. They have all been made this year, with this venue in mind. Many thanks for being the number one audience.

“Stream Treasure” original watercolor by Jan Rimerman

 

Jan Rimerman grew up around the waters of the Pacific Northwest. The “Sense of Place” that inspires her includes waves of movement in the streams, rivers and tidal edges. The flowing liquid negotiating the stones and the reflections of light fascinate Jan. She observes this evolution of changing forms and captures it with charcoal and paint.

 

“Secrets of the Stream”mixed media art by Jan Rimerman

This watery “Sense of Place” allows each viewer to dive in to go on their own adventure. It gives permission to get immersed into the many layers that whisks one away into a different environment.

 

“Sunlight in the Stream” mixed media art by Jan Rimerman

Everyone connects with their own experiences and “Sense of Place” whether from their childhood, recent memories or perhaps where they would like to be in the future.

“Summer Veil” mixed media art by Jan Rimerman

Rimerman’s unique technique allows the work to present a new perspective each time it’s seen. By slightly altering one’s viewing perspective you may see different symbols, waves and stones appear. As flowing water is constantly changing so do the paintings due to the many layers and applied textures that are revealed in different lights of the day & the season.

 

Jan Rimerman carefully observes the evolution of these changing forms. Placing layers of color, texture, form, light & shadow are all part of the intentional creative process. An under painting of powdered charcoal gelled onto heavy watercolor paper gives the finished painting a hint of visual textural mystery. As many as 22 layers of transparent fluid acrylic paint are applied on the initial powdered charcoal foundation allowing the adventure to begin.
