Kathryn Kolb, Trees Atlanta & EcoAddendum present
an exhibition of fine art photographs of Trees & Forested Landscapes by Kathryn Kolb.
Opening reception April 17, 5-9pm – Artist's Talk from 7-8pm
Show hours April 17 – May 15 Mon – Fri 9:30 – 4:00pm – extended hours Thursdays to 7:30 pm.
Kathryn's distinctive photographs of flora, landscapes and landscape details are based on several layers of design, from the natural forms of trees and plants to the camera formats she uses. Her result is an organic, aesthetic blend of forms that also conveys a transcendent essence of the energies of life in the natural world. Though her images often seem akin to paintings, her images are composed straightforwardly in the field and she uses no manipulative post-processing techniques.
Embarking on a study of how composition "works" in photographs, Kathryn has come to understand that her work, as well as the work of many artists, is based on the principles of "dynamic symmetry," which reveals that the forms of nature and the designs of aesthetic art are based in the same geometrical patterns. Further, these same geometries underlie the fundamental forces of the universe and shapes the existence of life.
In conjunction with show opening on Thursday eve, April 17, Kathryn will give a 45-min Artist Talk about her photographs, including how the geometry of aesthetic design, especially in photography, intersects with the design of trees, plants and natural landscapes–the beautiful and fascinating point where art, math and science become one and the same.
Kathryn is Master Naturalist as well as photographer, and as part of show events, she will lead three art-oriented walks with a special focus on the art within the landscape in Atlanta Parks and Greenspace.
