Sometimes the joy of creation is matched only by making something that truly isn’t a replica of anything else. That’s how artist Kathryn Bay operates.
Her new exhibit, Elusive Origins (on display at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art through Jan. 2), features digital art work that channels the studious focus of a macro photographer and the elemental passions of a minimalist painter to find inspiration for her work. She has no interest in representational imagery.
Though the foundations of her images may come from cracks in cement, scaffolding, fabric, and leaves, she blends and superimposes realism into a totally new state of being. For more information, visit sloma.org.
