Kat Kinnick: Abundance / Impermanence
July 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Kat Kinnick sees art as a way for humans to participate in what animals and plants experience naturally: “Quieting the mind, noticing connections that you missed, and heightening your senses as you feel at home in the world. Animals and plants seem to remember and hold wisdom of the ancient, and don’t forget by being distracted by newness like we are.”
Through her paintings, she accesses an imaginative process of making connections and engaging with senses that the rational, literal world cannot. Her goal in creating a painting is to find what speaks to her and create a work that resonates and sings from those elements. She revels in art that engages the audience as a massage for the soul, an invaluable experience in today’s world.
“What are we going to do throughout this time of losing species, ecologies, and wilderness untouched by humans?” Kinnick asks. “Poetry and art access the places we need to retrieve. I want people to have their kinship with animals and plants enhanced through my work and through the use of functional objects of craft.”
