I have the pleasure of announcing my solo exhibition, “Art by Kate Hendrickson” on artistvenu. A selection drawings from the past three years that come from the Detour and Concealed Faith series are being shown in this virtual setting.
About the drawings.
DETOUR: The weather’s temperament and how it reacts with the terrain’s formations can be fleeting. However, the impression can be most powerful: a city on the water’s edge is transformed as dramatic weather interacts with the architecture; the energy of the effervescent zone where sea meets land transforms as it reacts to atmospheric changes. As an avid bicyclist and walker, my journeys through urban and rural landscapes that fill my visual field with moments which become the subjects of my drawings. Much of the mileage runs along shorelines. Through personal observation I share what I see and how I feel during those moments. And sometimes, I detour to places in my imagination. In the end, the experience is frozen in time.
CONCEALED FAITH: There’s a history of hiding who you are. Before Constantine the Great, Christians were persecuted for their beliefs. They often used the symbol of a fish to signify Jesus. The reason is that the Greek word for fish, Ichthys, is so close to the pronunciation for Jesus. This iconography continued onto the Byzantine era. Similarly, Jews have concealed their faith for centuries by hiding symbols of their Judaism for fear of anti-semitism. As you look closer at these works on paper, you will see that there are bits of concealed Hebrew words peaking out and revealing themselves from their surrounding urban and natural environs. My artwork explores and reconciles feelings of discomfort in revealing Judaism, the faith I have chosen. I hope that these works on paper help everyone feel more comfortable proudly expressing who they really are.
