The exhibition “With Flying Colors” presents light and movement
An opening reception will be held for artist Kristen Pobatschnig’s exhibition, “With Flying Colors,” from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, May 28, at Denmark Arts Center Art.
This show will explore the air currents of birds in flight (as well as some insects in flight). The energy and movement of flight patterns and wind currents are captured visually. Kristen went into more detail about her art exhibit and her thoughts behind her designs. “I would like my work to serve as a break from reality as we know it. I invite the viewer to share a dance between time and space, to marvel and appreciate the colors and textures of nature and light. What can’t we see with human vision? Visible light is a fraction of the energy we see on the electromagnetic spectrum, which leads me to further explore the vast representations of colors in space. Combining layers of pointillism and abstraction, I seek to capture the expression of fleeting light and stillness of mind and space. Light and movement are my favorite subjects to capture.
Kristen Pobatschnig is an artist who emphasizes light and movement in a whirlwind of dots and fleeting shapes. As her paintings indicate, she is fascinated by movement. She paints mainly in acrylics, in what she considers an abstract-impressionist style. In addition to painting, she also creates kinetic sculptures and wall sculptures. A lifelong dance student, she is known for reproducing her paintings on clothes and costumes, to bring more movement to her works. Kristen has a growing number of public art installations across the United States. She has collaborated with many organizations including hospitals, public schools, interior designers and individuals throughout her creative journey, and is inspired by many. She graduated in 2006 from Colby-Sawyer College.
