Kristina Garon. A New Spin on the Natural World

“When I am creating art,” Kristina Garon says, “it just comes to me naturally.”

That feeling of naturalness and spontaneity is at the heart of what gives her paintings their appeal. “I can’t wait to see what comes to my canvas,” she adds, and that journey of discovery is something viewers also make while taking in her work. In what initially appear to be abstract swirls and patterns, faces and objects emerge, adding an element of human drama to the juxtapositions of colors and lines. That mix of worlds and tones gives her works energy and movement.

Working in acrylics, Garon capitalizes on the textures they provide and their intense colors. The paints in her works often have a liquid quality, sometimes seeming as if they were poured onto the canvas, at other times showing the power of the creative hand in the brushstrokes with which they are applied. When combined with her shimmering colors, the resulting surfaces pulse with life, reflecting the artist’s positive intent. “With my paintings,” says Garon, “I hope to create more positive energy and joy.”

About the Exhibition

The exhibition Divergent Realities gently guides the viewer through an emotional tour from tranquility to insensibility. Maryhelen Ewing’s calm landscapes and Giorgio Linda’s lithe, poignant subjects prepare visitors for a trip down the rabbit hole, as the works quickly segue into the shattered and surreal still lifes of the late Robert Paul Saphier, or the frantic abstract whirlwinds of color by Kristina Garon. All of the artists in the exhibition offer unquestionable talent in their varied media, and the resulting show is an experience to behold.
