Trailside Galleries is pleased to be presenting recent works by acclaimed painter Kathleen Dunphy during “Capturing the Light” in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Dunphy created a special body of work for the exhibition that consists of landscapes, water scenes, still life, wildlife, and more.
As both the title and Dunphy suggest, “This show is all about light, which is actually the unifying theme through most of my work. To me, subject matter is not as important as dramatic light in a scene. Rather than showing a ‘postcard’ view of an area, I’m interested in depicting a distinct moment in time. Every day is so different, and I strive to highlight those unique qualities in each painting. I love fleeting light effects, especially the transient quality of early morning and late evening sun. I think we’ve all stopped in our tracks and marveled at that angled light striking the earth; in my work I try to capture the feeling of those moments of awe.”
She adds, “In this show, I’ll be featuring paintings that range from the first light on a mountain meadow to cows in the hot summer sun to the last rays of light glittering off a bend in a river. Additionally, I’ll have a few still lifes in the show. Light remains the theme for these works, too, both the light that hits the objects and also its reflection and refraction through the glass vessels that I collect to use in these works.”
