Featuring the Art of Cathrine Edlinger-Kunze
December 11, 2013 – January 4, 2014
Reception: Saturday, December 14, 2013 from 6-10pm
ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are excited to present a stunning Solo Exhibition featuring the artwork of Cathrine Edlinger-Kunze. This exhibit will highlight Cathrine’s most current paintings focused on the human figure and images of fairground scenes. Cathrine will be in attendance at the Opening Reception to meet, greet and answer questions. The Opening Reception with Live Music will be held on Saturday, December 14 from 6-10pm. Complimentary Stone beer and wine will be served to guests.
Born and raised in Germany, Cathrine Edlinger-Kunze moved to the United States in 1994 where she works as a full time artist. She credits her father for inspiring her love of painting. "Sitting side by side with my father, I learned very early what painting meant to me, and it became a special bond to my father and me."
Edlinger-Kunze devotes most of her time to sketching and painting the figure, explaining "the human face and body always fascinated me...the body is the perfection of form, movement and nature." Much of the artist's recent subject matter revolves around performers and dancers, recalling the delicacy of Degas' ballerinas and the quietude of Picasso's saltimbanques.
Edlinger-Kunze has shown her work since 1985 and has exhibited in Germany, Italy and the United States; and counts collectors from Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. She currently resides in Carlsbad, California.
The exhibition will run from December 11 - January 4, 2013
