"Figuratively" by Karen Bonnano at Art & Frame

© Karen Bonanno
Paintings by Karen Bonanno are featured in an exhibit called "Figuratively" at Art & Frame of Danbury from September 25 through November 5, 2016. Also on view are selected works of glass artist Heidrun Morgan. There is an opening reception on Saturday, October 1 from 5 pm - 7 pm, with music by Wendy Cahill and Daniel Patrick Higgins.

Karen says of her work in her artist's statement, "I am most interested in the figure, whether it be in an interior, exterior or an undefined atmospheric space. Through expressive mark making and color choice, the figure is formed and solidified in its environment. Not so much capturing a likeness of a particular person but rather a gesture and mood that contributes to the narrative of the painting. My main influences are the artists of the Bay Area Figurative movement including David Park, Richard Deibenkorn and Elmer Bischoff as well as Cezanne, Bonnard and Matisse."

Art & Frame of Danbury is located at 60 Newtown Rd, Danbury, CT. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 10 am - 6 pm.
