Dreamscape: Stories from Earth and Beyond for May Artwalk
Calypso, guardian of the sea
Full of symbolism, heroines, goddesses and talismans, Kim Gordon's "Dreamscape: Stories from Earth and Beyond" explores the age-old tradition of storytelling with special attention to legend and myth, both modern and ancient.
Kim Gordon is an artist living and working in San Francisco, California. Her art reflects and incorporates her interest in magic, travel, myths, historical events and family heritage. She prefers to paint on wood as the grain, and other natural elements of the material, contribute their own story to the final piece.
Specializing in the honored tradition of painting women, her figures are used as vehicles to represent a wide variety of issues. A soft strength balanced with quiet reflection is found in the faces of her subjects. The worlds she creates echo the present day, historical fact and mythological folklore.
Kim Gordon's art is exhibited, featured and collected nationally and internationally. Gordon's recent exhibitions include the annual Laluzapalooza show,
hosted by La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. Her first show (acting as curator), titled, "Hope Beyond" brought together a talented roster of artists to successfully raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy (www.hope-beyond.com). Additionally, Gordon also generously donates her works to charitable causes, including the Sea No Evil Art Show and the Great West Coast Migration. Gordon’s work has been published in many publications, including Catapult Magazine, Clutter Magazine, Complex Magazine, Wired Magazine and Hi-Fructose magazine.
Jacqueline Chisick Local Painter
Nuns in the field
JACQUELINE CHISICK has emerged as an important artist of the Northwest. Her rich, luscious colors are always recognizable., and her forms seem full of the very life around her. Born in Arizona, she was raised in the hill country of cowboys and copper miners, with her family later moving to the desert; the muted colors of Arizona figured prominently in her earlier works. She received her Master’s degree from Arizona State University, and apprenticed under several European-trained artists. After teaching university and college art classes for twenty years, she packed her paints, her cat and her levis into her 1977 Porsche and moved to Port Townsend, Washington.
The human figure has always been important in her paintings, but since moving to Port Townsend her colors have become more intense and rich, with mysterious, deep crimsons and violets contrasting with the light of gold and vermilion.
