KATHLEEN KING

“DIVAS”

JUNE 8-JUNE 26, 201

Opening reception: Saturday June 12 , 3 -7 pm

Viridian Artists, Inc. is pleased to present, “Divas” Kathleen King’s most recent paintings, prints and drawings. ”Diva” is defined as an illustrious woman singer. Other definitions for diva are, Goddess, Deity and Prima Donna. Ms. King has come to see these abstracted totemic figures in her latest work as “Divas,”-- extremely temperamental and demanding attention!

Layers of painted passages create visual movements that evoke the impression that these ornamental, comic, and over the top creatures are indeed “singing and dancing”.

Source materials are taken from botanical fragments and wallpaper designs, which in turn are reconfigured in the drawings and prints and used as models for the central subjects in the paintings. The fanciful themes are revealed in improvised stages as each work is developed.

Kathleen King exhibits in New York and Chicago regularly. She will be included in two international group shows: “Viridian Artists” at Onward Gallery, Nihonbashi, Tokyo,, Japan in October -. November. 2010 and “2010 Registry Artists” in the SOMA Drawing Center in Seoul, Korea in December 2010. Ms. King will also be included in a group exhibit “ Chicago Stories: Prints” at the Art Institute of Chicago, May 2010.

 

Viridian Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday 10:30 am to 6pm.                 Barbara Neski, Director
