Mutable Landscapes

New Work by Patrick Kemal Pryor

November 6 - November 29, 2014

Patrick Kemal Pryor, a Kolman & Pryor Gallery artist and co-owner, has recently become fascinated with traditional landscape painting. In Mutable Landscapes, his new show of abstract work, Pryor takes a viewfinder approach to investigating movement and transformation in a new series of abstract landscapes.

“These landscapes have a mutable quality that allows them to be in constant movement and transformation, which are two primary tenets of my work as a painter,” Pryor explains. “Land could become sea, foreground could become rocks or a lake. Landscapes could be seascapes and show a distant horizon; be dust that’s swirling or settling; wind or rain or fog or clouds or snow. The multiplicity of interpretations allows me to explore and express philosophical questions of relativism and absolutism.”

Kathy Wismar manifests her credo, “To be an artist is to live through your work,” via two modes of artistic expression, one three-dimensional and the other equally invitational. In her new show, Intersections and Affirmations, at Kolman & Pryor Gallery, Wismar celebrates how “art is not static” with tactile ceramics and enticing abstract paintings that beckon viewers to experience—with their hands and eyes, hearts and minds—“a sense of possibility.”
