Janet Keith & Katherine St Angelo - 'Painted Perspectives'
20 May 2021 - 09 June 2021
ONLINE & at Gallery 545, Belfast
Virtual Exhibition Tour, Live on Instagram - Saturday 29 May, 10am
Katherine St Angelo’s semi-abstract mixed media works bear stronger resemblance to landscapes, as they often evoke dramatic distant views of open spaces, the textures of the earth and the drifting of clouds. Visual connections to landscapes, are accompanied by emotional ones too, as the artist intends to powerfully conjure and convey moods and feelings she experienced when immersed in natural surroundings. Her intense atmospheric paintings certainly invite the viewer to recognise natural sceneries and respond to them emotionally.
The artworks by Janet Keith and Katherine St Angelo brought together in this exhibition highlight how contemporary artists continue to look at landscapes and nature, while using their unique artistic processes and style to create original works.
This two-person exhibition is curated by Francesca Biondi, Art Director and Curator at Gallery 545 in collaboration with the artists.
