Kristy Luck exhibits introspective multi-media works @ Kortman Gallery
Kristy Luck uses multi-media techniques in her art to explore her inner feelings toward personal relationships in an exhibition titled, “Intimation(s)” opening Friday, April 13th in the Kortman Gallery.
Her images are created using several techniques from collage to layering pigment on canvas to painted photographic images. There is more to her soft, sometimes highly impressionistic works than meets the eye.
“My goal is to create a mood that hints at thoughts unspoken just below the surface, “ writes Luck in her artist’s statement. “My work is highly personal, but the feelings conveyed by my images are universal.”
According to Doc Slafkosky, gallery director, even though Luck’s work is emotionally charged it still has a mellow, relaxing quality. “Her art does speak to you emotionally with colorful, subdued imagery that is quite refreshing. You could say they are impressionistic abstracts,” said Slafkosky.
Kristy Luck is a Rockford native presently living and working in Chicago. She received her BFA at Rockford College and is currently pursuing her MFA in painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The opening reception for “Intimation(s)” exhibition by Kristy Luck will be Friday, April 13th from 5:00 to 9pm and Saturday, April 14th 3:00 to 9pm. The Luck exhibition is part of the 2012 Spring Rockford ArtScene and will be on display through May 31, 2012. The gallery is located upstairs at J. R. Kortman Center for Design, 107 North Main Street. For further information call 815/968-0123 or visit www.jrkortman.com.
