Elizabeth Karsch’s Exhibit, “Things We Don’t See” Opening Reception at Greenport Harbor Brewing Co.
07:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Greenport Harbor Brewing Co., Greenport,
“The Things We Don’t See,” an exhibit of new work by Elizabeth Karsch will be showing at the Gallery of The Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, 234 Carpenter Street in Greenport from December 1 through January 31, 2013. Open reception will be Saturday, December 8th from 7-9pm.
Orient artist Elizabeth Karsch creates mixed media works on paper at her home studio. In discussing her choice of medium over more formal methods of paint on canvas she says, “there’s a rawness and immediacy about drawing that I love.” Karsch, who was born in New York City, has lived on the East End since 2003 and considers her drawings to be reflections of the energy around her while working in her solitary studio. Figure drawing led her to an interest in the negative space around the bodies on her pages, and this grew into an obsession with the space around people. This energy, “the things we don’t see”, motivates the artist with captivating results. Explosions of color and swirling forms seem to be tangled up with memories and dreams, suggesting landscapes and evoking wonder.
Karsch has exhibited her work throughout the North and South Forks, New York City and Los Angeles. She has been a member of the collaborative group Bonac Tonic since she first moved to the East End and has worked with them to promote the enjoyment and participation in art by all. Her studio space overlooks the tranquil vistas of Orient Point, New York.
