Venice Studio Project

This past September was spent on the Island of Murano, outside of Venice, Italy at  a residency by the Venice Printmaking Studio. For three weeks I worked to make monotypes on their etching press, culminating in a  glass master at the glass school, Scuola del Vetro A. Zanetti translating one of my monotypes into a 12" glass sculpture.

Over the Table, On the Fridge, In the Kitchen
A group printmaking exhibition at 18 Reasons featuring Jennifer Kindell, Kate Klingbeil & Carissa Potter
March 6 - April 26, 2014

The gallery at 18 Reasons is pleased to present Over the Table, On the Fridge, In the Kitchen, a group printmaking exhibition for March and April. Featuring Bay Area artists Jennifer Kindell, Kate Klingbeil and Carissa Potter, each artist created new works around, about and in the kitchen.

Using inspiration from farmer’s market produce, Jennifer Kindell creates large-scale, intricate screenprints of Northern California fruits and vegetables. Graphic in style and complex color combinations, Jennifer’s works are alive. The lush work asks for attention: directly reflective of the bounty she enjoys daily, each layer of the print comes together to create a harmonious color chord. Kate Klingbeil, who primarily works with monotypes, has created new small scale prints of foods of all kinds: foods she craves, foods she’s tried while traveling abroad, foods from Oakland and most of all, foods she loves. Installed in a massive group on the gallery walls, the works fit together and play off of one another: abstracting each other and defining each other simultaneously. Klingbeil has also made sets of these prints as magnets to mix and match on the refrigerator. While Kindell and Klingbeil created prints on paper, Carissa Potter made an edition of tea towels for the exhibition called For Tears. Potter is interested in acknowledging the roles that objects play in our lives and hopes to allow those objects to lighten spirits on hard days. The towels are to dry your hands, your dishes, your counter--but also to hold your tears and, according to the artist, other emotional messes.
