Tara McKiernan Kovach: Recent Works
May 11—June 30, 2012.
Opening Reception: Fri., May 11, 6—8 p.m.
Tara McKiernan Kovach begins her paintings with intuitive, seemingly random marks. Kovach responds to these marks on a conscious and subconscious level, allowing this free association to manifest on the canvas. Her paintings are highly energetic and spirited. She uses oil and acrylic paints to create textured and multi layered works of great beauty, finesse and depth. Her colors are luscious and vivid, her tones ranging from murky darks to brilliant and rich middle tones to bright, clean highlights.
One group of paintings in this exhibition consists of macro views of details taken from nature, seed pods, blossoms, twigs, etc. Other paintings are large-scale depictions of colors engaging in a wild and wondrous dance.
The show will be on view from May 11 through June 30. There will be an opening reception this Fri., May 11, from 6—8 p.m.
