“Color Forms of Our Universe” by Martha Kaplan


By Hand Gallery
http://www.byhandgallery.com

”The content of color paints our days and nights. We prefer certain colors and color combinations, Colors have dispositions indicative of regions, origins, harmonics.” The 32 pieces of fine contemporary art, created by Martha Kaplan, are from three different series. The ‘New Kachinas’ are graphite and colored pencils and are a leap of faith from the side of the mind that is new territory. ‘Large Lace Paperworks’ are mixed media drawings setting out to restructure the disparities of the burdens of the world and ‘Pastels’ are the bridge where conscious and unconscious space can meet.

Exhibit will run August 1 through September 27
Closed Sundays

A self-portrait need not encompass traditional ideas- one can even break away from depicting one’s face, the element typically associated with self-portraits; in my photography the tree has become symbolic of myself which has led me to realize I am creating “self-portrayals” that allow me to create pieces that are as diverse as I am.

Exhibit runs until October 2.
