September 14-September 23 – The Meaning of Life, The Art of Kate Buckelew
Artist Reception Saturday, September 15, 6-9 pm with a performance by Voci Women’s Vocal Ensemble at 7:00 pm. All are welcome.
My work, which combines painting, drawing and collage, examines the mysteries of the psyche, both its hazards and its fervent idealizations. I populate my pieces with archetypical characters and props drawn from my culture and my own memories, reproducing and patterning them into broader, nearly abstract structures. Through these associations, I explore the difficult passage into maturity and greater self-understanding. Despite the collective weight of these preoccupations, a sense of fun overtakes my working process and brings levity and humor into the finished artworks.
