CHERIE MITTENTHAL

EMERGENCE

JUNE 6-17, 2014

RECEPTION JUNE 6, 7-9PM

Kobalt Gallery is pleased to present “EMERGENCE”, Cherie Mittenthal’s second solo exhibition at the gallery. The artist will exhibit her latest encaustic paintings exploring the ritual of layering with both pure and pigmented wax on wood panel.

Integrating tar, marble dust, pigment sticks, and graphite into many of her works, these materials combine to create a subtle luminosity.

In “Emergence”, Mittenthal is focused on the synergy between stillness and motion. Her paintings speak metaphorically to the changing tide’s effect on the surrounding houses and structures, the shape of a house representing “home, comfort, stability, safety and happiness”.

“The houses emerge from the sea. The work emerges from the wax, creating a new space or vision.” – Cherie Mittenthal
