SYNC Gallery presents Karin Kempe
The process of painting uncovers the landscape of my mind so I think of these paintings as “mindscapes.” As a meditation practice, I let my mind open and enter a still point in the activity of painting. I let go of intention, so that a glowing space can develop through the vibration of color, organic random marks and the will of liquid paint as it drips and finds its way. As the painting starts to talk back, I listen for its voice. During my work of this past year, it seems that these paintings express fragments of memory and echoes of the natural world. It’s an intuitive and flowing process which feels mysterious and alive.
