SCRATCH Solo Exhibition Featuring Kim McAninch - Palette Knife Oil Painter
I'm pleased to announce our first solo art exhibition featuring Pittsburgh artist, Kim McAninch with opening celebration Saturday night, March 25th from 6 - 8pm at Gilberti Fine Art. This coincides with other events going on in town.
Anchor & Anvil will be hosting the musical group 'The New 52' and Emma Jeans Attic will be joined by Lucinda Wade and Ed Pitassi (both running for council) for a meet and greet from 6-7pm.
Below is a recent article about Kim and her artwork published on Ugallery:
Kim McAninch - Set Sail on a Visual Journey
Kim McAninch's paintings are a glide into a glinting seashore’s tranquility. The patches of color are like the sail of a sailboat: they propel a voyage of the eye. The viewer navigates from shade to shade, negotiating the composition’s shifting oceans and beachy shores.
Her style is efficient. She captures solid form and shaded depth through juxtaposing colors. Rectangles of green become palms. Lines of blue and green become tufts of grass. Overlaid dabs of violet, pink, orange, and yellow become the sun’s reflection on the water. The brilliant coalescence of her color swatches, both naturalistic and not, harmonize into images of peacefulness.
She offers this as her mantra of inspiration: “Loose but accurate and then looser but more accurate. That’s the goal. In other words, I want to offer more information, with less detail.”
One of the most important lessons she has learned through her artistic career is the value of education. She studied at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where she earned a B.F.A. with a concentration in Surface Pattern Design. Her studies can be applied to designs for flooring, wallpaper, fabric, dishes, tablecloths, vinyl shower curtains, and wrapping paper. “Although I was too young to fully appreciate the gifts of my professors at the time, I certainly recognize them now and repeat the same truths now that I have students of my own” she says.
Through her interior and pattern design, she was exposed to nearly every style. This gave her stylistic range and agility. The transition to full-time artist was seamless because, as she puts it, “the very same elements are at play.”
“Only now, I am free to use my own innovation with no justification, to explore that balance between representation and design.”
There are many talented, innovative artists and while I get a pang of jealousy when I see something I would like to tackle that was executed perfectly, I will be most successful if I let my own odyssey take place” she says.
McAninch works in her studio in Downtown Pittsburgh, where the view of Point State Park is, “always captivating and inspirational".
