Check this out: Kathleen Thum at Lake George Arts Project
“Chutes & Ladders”, gouache and graphite on paper, 30 x 22 inches, 2010.
The next exhibition at the always interesting Lake George Arts Project is a solo show of new work by Kathleen Thum. The show runs from July 10 – August 13, with an opening reception from 4 – 6 p.m. Saturday, July 10.
Thum, who teaches at Skidmore in Saratoga Springs, says of her abstract paintings, drawings and wall installations: “I think of my drawings and paintings as internal landscapes of our bodies; cells, veins, skin, nerves. These landscapes are systems that our lives depend upon. They circulate blood, compress or expand to breathe, filter or cover to protect and carry signals or messages. They are all inter-related and inter-dependent. I use these systems to construct various structures in my drawings and paintings. Like our internal systems, the structures are linear, flowing, clustered, dense, and intertwined.”
