Western Reserve Land Conservancy presents

Narratives – Figurative Works, Portraits, Still Life Paintings by Kathleen McKenna

Artist statement:

My goal as an artist is to utilize all that is abstract in the painting process to create a presence.  I want my work to deliver something that is visceral.  When I look at my painting, whether it is a commissioned portrait, a figure from imagination or a flower from my garden, I want to feel the presence of my subject.

Beginning with an abstract arrangement of value shapes and color, I strive to suggest rather than define.  I try to say as much as possible with each brush stroke.  The process of expressing an idea by catching rhythms and sculpting the form with gestural strokes of color creates energy.  I hope the viewer can experience this energy.
