Ann Korologos Gallery presents Moments of Light, a group exhibition exploring the intimate mood and presence instilled by the interaction of light and landscape as captured in the diverse painting styles of Kate Starling, Sabrina Stiles, Peter Campbell, and Deborah Paris. The exhibition is on view January 21 through March 6, 2021 at Ann Korologos Gallery in historic downtown Basalt, Colorado and virtually at korologosgallery.com.
In the dark of winter, we are celebrating moments of light,” shares gallery owner, Ann Korologos. “We encourage the viewer to connect with the mood of a moment through landscapes of Colorado and Utah captured in the large-scale paintings of Kate Starling, evocative pastels of Sabrina Stiles, moody Aspen groves and poetic still lifes by tonalist Deborah Paris, and the atmospheric, dreamscape paintings by Peter Campbell.”
Kate Starling lives and paints near Utah’s Zion National Park, with visits to Colorado. Starling’s paintings portray the natural world and focus on communicating a sense of place, atmosphere and dazzling light, retaining the immediacy of the painting experience. Starling knows well the power of emotion that the land can trigger in her when seen in a particular light, and she strives to evoke equally strong memories and emotions for the viewers of her work.
Sabrina Stiles is a Colorado-based pastel artist with an expressive style that lends itself to her chosen medium. Primarily a landscape artist, Stiles prefers to work en plein air, and draws inspiration from cloudy days that allow for softer light and feminine expression. Her keen observation and reverence for the beauty that surrounds her is evident in her work. She prefers to make her own surfaces: un-sanded board coated with oil paint, multi-media boards coated with gesso and pumice mixes, watercolor washes on paper, and more.
Peter Campbell lives in Durango, CO. The ideas for Campbell’s landscape oil paintings are often sparked by a fleeting glimpse that catches his eye and elicits an intimate and personal reaction to nature. The challenge lies in transferring that instant response to canvas. His oils depict the beauty of a rain storm, rivers rushing through a landscape, and barns at twilight. By limiting his palette and omitting details, Peter effectively creates an atmosphere, a mood, sometimes a dream-like world which is open to each viewer’s interpretation.
Texas-based artist Deborah Paris is an American landscape artist whose work reflects an intense, intuitive connection to the natural world and its rhythms. The time spent in the Aspen groves of Colorado inspires a body of the artist’s work. Based on a foundation of intense observation, drawing, memory and imagination, as well as indirect painting techniques, Deborah Paris produces luminous works full of mystery and mood.
