We are excited to announce our upcoming exhibition Lined featuring new work by Kate Petley opening June 9th and extending through June 29th, with an opening reception on the 13th. Petley is a Colorado-based artist who creates enigmatic abstractions recalling specific times and places. Previously, she has painted on industrial film with strong, bold brushstrokes and suspends these layers amid a pool of acrylic resin, mounted on aluminum.

Her latest work, to be debuted in this show, uses the same materials and process, but has simplified this process to break down the elements of color and line to their essence. Petley now produces hundreds of paintings, selecting only a few that are then photographed and printed onto mylar, making the focus now less on the complex collages and more on the striking lines and gestures. With this revision of her process, Kate is able to distill the components down to the most essential, culminating in their isolation and subsequent strength of solidarity. The resulting forms are mysterious and evoke memories of various environments and reflections of nature and conjure different moods and attitudes, for which they are named.

Kate's work resides in numerous public and private collections, including The Nicolaysen Museum in Casper, Wyoming.
