July 13 - August 23, 2014
Opening reception: July 13
De Luca Fine Art is pleased to present new paintings by Canadian painter Kathryn Bemrose.
Bemrose about her new work: "I use abstracted visual verse, unlimited in time and interpretation, leaning towards Les Automatiste’s manner of physical, intuitive painting.
Colour strokes colour, a line leads to a shape, which grows, then disappears only to return like an afterthought. The line pokes along, is swallowed then regurgitated to continue the game. These paintings grow out of each other and are products of a very visceral conversation with myself.
I also create compositions with autobiographical references like the set of circles titled “Hollywood Wanted Me”. I had stared at the blank circles for a long time wondering why I bought them. Then I referred to a picture diary I drew in Mexico in 1983 when our guide became the only character we actually talked to. He said he was in the movie, “Vera Cruz”, starring Gary Cooper. They wanted him to dance. “
