5 - 8 pm



KW Contemporary Art presents TRANSCENDENCE, Elaine Coombs’ first solo exhibition with KW Contemporary Art.  The exhibition, so titled, explores the artist’s newest series of sky paintings, while continuing her depictions of idyllic sunlit landscapes. This new body of work, inspired by mesmerizing cloud patterns and the softly undulating colors of the golden hour, seek to conjure a sense of peace.  Coombs’ use of metallic backgrounds in silvery pearls and golds stand in for sunlight and provide a soothing visual respite to rhythmic palette knife marks that indicate clouds, meticulously applied.  This combination of both simple and complex forms completes an ethereal skyward vision of the artist’s ideal psychological state made manifest.
