About This Event

Please join us for Katherine Mann’s Solo Exhibition!

Exhibition: November 3rd, 2012 - December 15th, 2012
Opening: Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

Katherine Mann’s paintings show how patterned, highly wrought, decorative elements coalesce from the chaos and contingency of an organic environment--and how they dissolve into that environment again. Mann begins each painting with a stain of color, the product of chance evaporation of ink and water from the paper as it lies on the floor of the studio. From this shape, she nourishes the landscape of each painting, coaxing from this organic foundation the development of diverse, decorative forms: braids of hair, details from Beijing opera costuming, lattice-work, sequined patterns. Although founded in adornment, these elements are repeated until they too appear organic, even cancerous... and they at once highlight and suffocate the underlying ink stained foundation.
