Takes You to Another Place – BOOKS

Have you ever read a book that paints such a picture that you are actually there with the main character. I just finished such a book in which the narrator recounts his early life in a turbulent pre WWII era and onward. Jimmy Ernst the son of the famous Surrealist, Max Ernst portrays a life filled with artists in Cologne, Paris and New York. All the art greats move in and out of the scenes. Artists’ lives were messy and sometimes messier regarding their wives and children. Join the Journey with me, Kate Hendrickson at artistvenu. Oh, the book if you want to know. A NOT-SO-STILL LIFE.

My work explores my feelings about the search for comfort in revealing my faith. I converted to Judaism. I hope that my artwork helps everyone feel more comfortable in expressing who they really are.

I use stencils of Hebrew letters to create an underlayment structure upon which I build the composition. The word chosen is based on my interest in urban and nature environs. Color choices are made based on my feelings about the word. As I work with pastel, graphite and colored pencil the letters are concealed to the point where pieces of the letters and ghost images of them remain.
