Art + Art History Lecturer Kate Colin in North Lake College Exibition


Kate Colin: Multicentric Vista

North Lake College

5001 N. MacArthur Blvd.

Irving, TX 75038-3899

Reception: Tuesday, February 19th, 7:30 - 9:00 

This solo exhibition of Kate Colin’s large paintings on canvas along with smaller works on paper uses scale, mark making, and process to allude to hypothetical terrains and amorphous spaces. All of the works, whether on paper or canvas, suggest a bold figure ground relationship between an organic shape created by an unpredictable painting process and the negative space, which may consist of raw canvas. Geometry and the system of perspective consistently play a role throughout each work, which contrasts to the bleeding transparent colors. Overall fragmented shapes of opaque color shift between revealing structure while allowing expansive space to dominate, which narrows the gap between fluid unpredictable marks and hard-edged preconceived shapes.

Exhibition on view through March 16
