“Project Series 45: Kirsten Everberg: In a Grove” will consist of a suite of four new paintings based on Everberg’s exploration of the 1950 Japanese crime drama Rashomon by filmmaker Akira Kurosawa. For “In a Grove,” Everberg is creating an almost hallucinatory environment as the four new large paintings wrap the viewer in an immersive atmosphere that alludes to the slippery nature of truth. For over ten years, Everberg has explored issues of meaning, memory, and history through fluid abstractions that have multiple narrative and painterly layers.  In strikingly beautiful paintings, she explores how images work and how images mark the elusive passage of time. Everberg has developed an innovative technique of pouring glossy enamel paint onto horizontal canvases creating lush surfaces that blur representation and abstraction. With vibrant color and shimmering light, the images shift and change as the viewer moves around the work.
