Kathleen Lemoine : Learning to dance

October 1 - 26, 2017

Kathleen Lemoine, Night and Day, acrylic on shaped panels, 12 x 16 in.


In her latest exhibition, Learning to Dance, Kathleen Lemoine focuses on movement. Lemoine explores the movement of elements within each piece as well as the movement of shapes from one painting to another until something “clicks.” Lemoine plays with space, expressing her ideas three dimensionally rather than confining motion within two dimensional painting. In experimenting with this multidimensional process, Lemoine finds humor and fun in many pieces in this series and that she truly is learning to dance along the way. 

Lemoine has exhibited her work regionally and nationally. Residencies and conferences brought her to North Adams and Provincetown, Massachusetts and Jemez Springs, New Mexico. Honors include a National Endowment of the Arts fellowship as well as grants from the Louisiana Division of the Arts. Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, Encaustic Works 12, A Biennial International Juried Exhibition in Print and Authentic Visual Voices: Contemporary Paper & Encaustic.
