"Lost At Sea", Mixed Media, 30"x30", 2012, K Lenore Siner
For the first time in Massachusetts, K Lenore Siner will exhibit new mixed media paintings in a one month solo show at Prana, 292 Centre St, Newton MA. The exhibition will open July 1st and run through July 31st. The opening reception is Thursday, July 12th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
K Lenore Siner's work is unique in technique and expressive in content. This exhibition showcases her experiments with wax, oil paint, china marker and glass substrates - primarily wooden framed windowpanes. The paintings are themselves windows into an emotional terrain, an exploration of the dialog between the external world and our emotional reactions to it.
In "Lost At Sea", a small blue figure crouches with its head down. Stars, flowers and ocean circle in geometric planes around the figure, the edges defined by splashes of wax and finally the exposed glass pane beneath. The viewer may question if the figure is aware of the activity going on around it or if the landscape is actually a depiction of its thoughts. This juxtaposition of internal/external is highlighted by Siner's use of wax and paint in successive transparent layers which creates opportunities to look through the painting to images within.
K Lenore Siner is a self taught painter with formal training in sculpture from the Massachusetts College of Art. She has exhibited work throughout New England and currently serves as the director of Peregrine Gallery in Providence, RI.
