Katheryn Market Fine Arts presents Fran Shalom, “The Pause that Refreshes”

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Pause that Refreshes, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Fran Shalom ongoing through June 15th.

In this new body of work, Shalom’s quirky, abstract paintings strike a balance between formality and playful exuberance. Shapes are pared to their basic elemental forms and animated in vibrant, cartoony color with clearly defined edges, representing a quest for order and simplicity. The forms reference the human body but are open to interpretation. They become characters that inhabit her studio, keeping her company and engaging in silent conversations.

Shalom draws inspiration from her Zen Buddhist practice and says:

“In Zen there is a wonderful saying: Not knowing is most intimate. It suggests approaching something with open-minded and whole-hearted curiosity. I begin my paintings this way, with a willingness to be present with uncertainty, and with the confidence that the process will result in work that both satisfies and inspires.”
