Keira Kotler: I Look for Light

Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings by Bay Area artist Keira Kotler, on November 1. Using layers of shimmering pigments suspended in urethane, Kotler paints with subtle value shifts and chromatic complexities that inspire internal contemplation. Forming delicate variations of light and color resonance within a reductive field, Kotler aims to quiet the mind and induce calm reflection. I Look for Light will be on view through December 20, 2014.

Rooted in color theory and psychology, Kotler’s radiant new series explores the visual phenomena of color and light through the layering of liquid pigment and captured illumination. Through a combination of blending and pouring of translucent glaze, Kotler accentuates the gesture and movement of the material, allowing the hues to shift from light to dark. Each additional layer intensifies the vibrancy of the colors below, amplifying the paintings’ capacity for luminosity and depth.

The manipulated urethane, infused with incandescent hues and metallic fragments, solidifies and freezes mid-motion, capturing a sea of stirring color and radiance. The result is a shimmering surface that shifts with changing light, position, and point of view. Kotler states, “Much like standing before a vast ocean or river, where water offers a sense of perspective, expansiveness and serenity; so too these paintings serve as a space for reflection.”

Kotler received her B.A. in 1993 from Barnard College of Columbia University and her M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2006. Her work has been shown at di Rosa in Napa, The Berkeley Art Center, Palm Springs Art Museum, SFMOMA Artists Gallery, and the UCSF Women’s Health Center. Her work is represented by galleries across the US and collected internationally. This is her second solo exhibition with Brian Gross Fine Art.
