Matteawan Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of recent paintings and drawings by Ky Anderson. This is Anderson’s first exhibition at the gallery. A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, September 9 from 6-9 pm and the show runs through Sunday, October 1.
Ky Anderson’s enigmatic paintings and drawings are abstract, but with subtle references to nature. She has a deft sense of color that alternates between warm yellows, pinks, and browns to cool blues, grays, and greens. Her work features strong compositions that combine solid blocks of color with lines and open space. A key feature of her process is the layering of lines and color in varying degrees of opacity. At times she lets the paint drip or splatter, adding an element of chance to the composition. Some of Anderson’s paintings are framed with painted wood frames that become part of the work and serve to complete the overall composition and color scheme.
