Throughout art history the female form has been a subject of artists. The two artists in this exhibit react to the same figure, in a shared studio at the same time with very diverse outcomes.Christine Ritchie is interested in the figure as a vehicle in transit through space & looks for rhythms created by the human form as it moves through & beyond or into the picture space.

Kip Kowalski gravitates to the comically grotesque & obscenely ugly. He explores the figure in search of gestures & shapes as a beginning & then proceeds to create a narrative that deals with his extreme subject matter using a surreal mix of metaphors, visual distortions & slapstick humor.

Both artists handle the concepts of space in which the figure occupies on the picture plane. Kip by creating an environment in which the figure(s) lives. Christine allows the figure(s) to create space through which it moves.

While Christine approaches the figure externally with an immediate alla prima process, Kip internalizes the human form to express & combine the psychological realities of his personal vision.

The duality of nature in these works are evidence of the very different “eyes” we each possess & how we see & react to the world around us.
