Saturated by Claire Kahn

December 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This December, Patina Gallery’s beloved Santa Fe artist Claire Kahn returns with a brand-new exhibition, Saturated, for the holiday season.

Exhibition opens Friday, December 17, 2021
Reception from 5–7 pm
Patina Gallery
131 West Palace Ave.
Santa Fe, NM

The bountiful riches of the season are realized in colorfulness beyond compare. Kahn conveys her love of pattern and value across a collection of art jewelry as well as a limited series of paintings.

Her artistic necklaces and bracelets are presented in abundance, happily expressed in deep spectrums of color with the joyful intensity of full-bodied gems.

The two-dimensional, geometric expressions comprised of hand-drawn ink and paint brightly coalesce to complement her sprightly beaded arrangements.

“Pieces in Saturated are generally made with a dark matrix, punctuated with saturated color accents and with the uses of deep-colored gemstones such as kyanite, garnet, amethyst, emerald, and sapphire. Some works, including the wall pieces, are made with patterns in white, black, gold, and silver that express the sharp contrasts found in winter.” —Claire Kahn

Each work of art is an ornament, inspired by the wholeness this year’s tidings bring: the great pleasure of togetherness once again.

Through Saturated, Kahn’s celebratory beauty is teeming with vivacity and palpable wonder for both body and space.
