KATHLEEN JACOBS: ECHOS
TURN PARK ART SPACE, WEST STOCKBRIDGE, MA (work in progress)
Taking advantage of a unique setting, ECHOS juxtaposes the process of creating the work and the resulting finished paintings. Kathleen brings the exhibit out from the confines of a gallery into the space of the park and unfolds it like a tapestry. A constellation of canvas fragments draws the observer’s gaze from one place to another, creating a unique geometry, calling attention to specific segments on the trunks of the trees. She collaborates with the trees, taking what they offer and the process of creation becomes an installation in itself.
