Quatre Saisons

September 11 – October 2, 2022

In this new suite of work, Quartet explores the subject of the four seasons, a classic theme in art for centuries, if not millennia. 

Gallery view: Spring and Summer
Virtual walkthrough and talk with the artists: September 18, 2022

The seasons are an annual reminder of life’s inexorable movement from beginning to end, from birth to death. Yet, they do evoke in us the sense that there can be renewal after loss, and new growth where all had perished, as Winter moves into Spring. Thus, for artists, the seasons are a powerful conduit to explore how these cycles manifest in our lives, overtly and as allegory. Today, though, it’s a fraught time for our world, with the very climate – and the seasons with it – mutated by our frenzied consumption of the planet’s dark matter.

In that light, Quartet has engaged with the four seasons in a variety of ways, finding the beauty, subtlety, nuance, and intensity of each one. The uniform dimensions of the work (all are 24” x 24”) provide a gentle visual continuity and allow the range of media in play to reveal the myriad facets of the seasons. The artists plunge into the fecundity of Spring, the exuberance of Summer, the fullness and maturity of Autumn (or Fall), and the barrenness of Winter, and find groundedness in this ancient rhythm.  ~ Kerry Kugelman

Quartet are Karen Ruth Karlsson, Denise Kraemer, Kerry Kugelman, and Jill Sykes.
