An opening reception will be held for artist Kristen Pobatschnig’s exhibit, “With Flying Colors,” from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, May 28, at the Denmark Arts Center Art.

This show will explore air currents of birds in flight (as well as some insects in flight). Energy and movement of flight patterns and wind currents are visually captured. Kristen more fully explained her art show and her thoughts behind her creations. “I would like my work to serve as a break from reality as we know it. I invite the viewer to share a dance between time and space, to revel in wonder, and to enjoy the colors and textures of nature and light. What can’t we see with human vision? Visible light is a fraction of energy we see on the electromagnetic spectrum, which leads me to further explore the vast representations of colors in space. Combining layers of pointillism and abstraction, I look to capture the expression of fleeting light and tranquility of mind and space. Light and movement are my favorite subjects to capture.”

Kristen Pobatschnig is an artist who emphasizes light and movement in a whirlwind of fleeting dots and forms. As indicated in her paintings, she is fascinated by movement. She paints primarily in acrylic, in what she considers an abstract-impressionist style. In addition to painting, she also creates kinetic sculptures and wall sculptures. A lifelong student of dance, she has been known to reproduce her paintings on clothing and costumes, to bring further movement to her artwork. Kristen has a growing number of public art installations throughout the US. She has collaborated with numerous organizations including hospitals, public schools, interior designers, and individuals throughout her creative journey, and is inspired by many. She is a 2006 graduate of Colby-Sawyer College.
