New Works by Chris Karpinski
May 1st - 31st 2010
Artists Reception: Friday, May 7th from 4 - 7pm.
During the month of May, left Bank Gallery Essex will hold a solo exhibition for experienced plein air painter Chris Karpinski. "Blue Sky" will be on view from May 1st - May 31st 2010 featuring over 30 paintings ranging in scale and price point.
The artist's work surrounds the theme of luminous skies and serene landscapes conveying atmosphere, space, and eternal expanses. Voluminous clouds, clear blue skies, or diffused sunsets dominate the canvas, often grounded by thin streaks of distant horizon.
The artist's aim is to share her experiences and love of the outdoors and to uplift the viewer:
"The landscape is a sensual feast. Painting outdoors helps me to explore this experience, and to record it for my own and others enjoyment. If the light, color and atmosphere of my paintings stimulate the viewer's memory of a time and place - a peacful retreat, then I have accomplished all I could have hoped for."
Karpinski is an award winning artist. Her work has been shown throughout the United States, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. Karpinksi is an alumus of Rhode Island School of Design and the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts.
