Artist’s Reception with Kerry G. Evans
January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Medfield artist Kerry Evans has been painting and teaching for many years. Her focus is the natural world around us and the intersection between reality and abstraction: shapes, colors, sensations, & emotions. An exhibit of vibrant and flowing paintings.
In Kerry’s words:
“My compositions have always, in some way, abstracted the visual world…I usually select a cropped portion of the visual world to focus on. This, I think, is because my interest lies at the intersection between reality and abstraction…not in pure abstraction. While I am creating the work, suddenly the material world drops away and what becomes important are the colors, shapes, sensations, emotions….the impact of the moment. I seek to share this impact…to make it visible. ‘Come quick! You have to see this moon…this incredible sunset, this butterfly!’ My impatience with sharing these fleeting and exuberant moments of life comes from my understanding that the ephemeral is what makes life worth living. I want to capture it…share it…celebrate it.”
