This piece is from a series titled "Still". It is a play on words, and a challenge I proposed to myself and now share. Does this painting take you to a state of stillness? Where one watches surroundings unfold and doesn't depart , "still stays there".... in a moment that may or may not be wavering"? Or, does it take one to a place where countless moments and surroundings are unwavering, seemingly frozen.....so still, so quiet. So loud, so chaotic. So humorous, so glum. So light, so dark. I am fascinated by human states of being. So many are a choice - happiness, sadness, regret, resentment, darkness, forgiveness, pity delight....The plethora is always available. Yet, we often stay stuck in stale pity when we need to move on to free happiness. We escape to drunk happiness when we need to immerse a bit in sadness. We humans are constantly playing the old retro game of Twister with our emotions. So, I place a square amidst a representation of a state of being. I place you can choose to meditatively sit if you'd like..... Sit on the squares in these paintings and see for yourself what your tendency is.... Can you still be still a while?

Kathryn Fortson has exhibited in group and solo shows throughout the Southeastern U.S. Her paintings and prints are held in private, corporate, and public collections world wide. "For me, abstract painting begins by connecting to a state of being or maybe connecting to an emotion. Sometimes being an object or element in nature. To be a shell … or to be a blade of grass in the wind. And, if not a tangible thing, I often connect to states of being. Can emotion form motion? Would it form line, depth shadows, movement ….how might laughter play with colors and light? When I am painting, I don't really think about what brush to pick up or color to mix. It is as though my connected state and my painting skills have their own dance. It is a little bit meditative, a little bit of disassociation and a lot of surrendering. I hope my work can evoke curiosity and perhaps encourage a different outlook or perspective. Maybe nudge the viewer to bypass one's typical interpretations and open to the intangible energy an art piece may offer. Kathryn Fortson's studio is in Alpharetta, Georgia USA. She accepts commissions.
