A New Perspective

Frontier

By Kathleen Cammarata

Earth’s age is 4.54 billion years old, first seen from space as “The Blue Marble” in 1972. The age of human painting is 40,000 years old, first seen in red ochre and black pigment on cave walls. The age of representational painting is 2,400 years old, first seen in China. The age of landscape painting is 1,115 years old, again first seen in China in the eleventh century.

From space, we comprehend Earth as an active planet composed of the four elements: earth, air, fire, and water. These constituents are constantly in flux.We know infinity exists microscopically and macroscopically. We have ventured beyond the historical depiction of land and sky.

Our new perspective calls for a new genre of landscape painting. My paintings are of this genre. They examine the place and terrain of this new understanding of the world, a world subject to growth, change, explosion, and rebirth. The paintings are abstract swirling patterns that mix the elements of earth, air, fire, and water. Planets emerge, fossils bury in the forms, red gas bubbles up from under, clouds hover over surfaces, and light creates its own source.

Possessed of an abstract beauty, these images are contemporary landscapes we need to be engaged with. They call on us to widen our view and remind us of energies we cannot visually perceive. They call on us to see our participation in the unfolding of the universe.

I have been a painter for 30 years, the last three in San Miguel de Allende. I have had over 25 solo exhibitions, the most recent at Belles Artes. My work is in numerous collections, both corporate and private. I have taught at two museums and a university in the States. My website is kcammarata.com.

You can see my paintings at Esperanza Studio on Sunday, April 14, 2–5pm or by appointment. For an appointment please email me at katcammarata@gmail.com
