Kokoro Studio announces
"Lightweight," a Solo Exhibition by Catrine Bodum

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


SAN FRANCISCO, CA--Kokoro Studio is pleased to announce "Lightweight," an exhibition of new paintings by Catrine Bodum, on view through April 28. "Lightweight" is Bodum's first exhibition in the western United States, and will include a selection of works in watercolor on muslin. 

Catrine Bodum's special interest in painting lies in the potential of layers, as both a literal build-up of paint on canvas, and a metaphor for time and experience. She recently transitioned from oil paints to watercolor, and now utilizes the paint's ability to mottle, bleed, stain, veil, and resist on the muslin surface. Bodum describes her works as "containers of information." As new information layers over what came before, the image is both revealed and confused. In this world, "different things can take place in the same place."

These new works are delightfully colorful, built in thin veils where each color combines with others to make many. Under these vibrant surfaces, portions of unprimed, natural muslin peek out in contrast. The patterns recall other layered environments: tree branch after tree branch in a forest, paper and paste residue on old billboards, sea foliage floating on the ocean's surface, the accidental composition on a painter's studio floor. 

Catrine Bodum is a Swiss/Danish artist who lives and works in both London and Lucerne, Switzerland. She received her BFA from Parsons School of Design, New York City, and her MA in fine art from Byam Shaw School of Art, London. Her work has been exhibited in London, New York City, and Lucerne. 

"Lightweight" will be on view at Kokoro Studio from April 7 to April 28, 2011. There will be a public opening reception on April 7 from 7pm to 10pm. Kokoro Studio is located at 682 Geary Street in San Francisco, just a few blocks from Union Square, and is open Tuesday through Friday from 2pm to 8pm, Saturday from 12pm to 7pm, and by appointment.
