The Korn Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition Distant Exposure by Patty Cateura. To counteract the passive intake of images that bombard us daily, Cateura’s paintings entice the viewer to slow down and pause. Her art originates from time spent in remote landscapes, hiking, camping- being in nature. Back in the studio, this inspiring exposure yields flattened and juxtaposed abstract shapes of mountains, vistas, canyons, rivers and sea. Color is precisely chosen and hand-made from dispersion pigment. Perspective is vast and skewed within the infinite expanse of monochromatic space. Occasional floating and fragmented geometric shapes allude to the man-made. Yet nature prevails in hills, trees, desert and pure color fields. Through the openness and sometimes emptiness of her compositions, Cateura evokes nature’s vibrancy, power, scale, and stillness as an arresting visual pause from the overdose of our media driven digital lives.
Patty Cateura attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, received an MFA from The Maryland Institute of the Arts and a BA from Oberlin College. Her work has been shown throughout the US including recent solo shows at Robert Henry Contemporary, Brooklyn, NY; Carol Shen Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; The Cooler Gallery, VT; and Gregory Lind Gallery, San Francisco, CA. She has been awarded residencies at: The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts; Yaddo; The MacDowell Colony; Virginia Center for the Creative Arts; and The Millay Colony. She has received painting grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts and The Pollock-Krasner Foundation
