A Picture of Health: A Metaphor for an Idiom

September & October South End Member Artist: Kara Torres (Fine Forager)

My intuitive painting practice is heavily reflective of my childhood growing up in rural Vermont. I began painting as a way of processing my anxiety and working through the negative messages I received about my gender and sexuality. Generally, I start a painting with no plan for what I’d like to create. I choose a few colors that I like, focus on a specific memory, and start mapping out a visual representation of it.

August & September Downtown Member Artist: Kimberly Bombard


My preferred medium is oil. I love its slipperiness and tactile texture. I love delicately smoothing oranges, yellows, and light blues around a canvas.

From my very first memories, I have always seen myself as an artist. I vividly remember coloring in kindergarten: I experienced a pleasant feeling like a trance, a kind of meditation, pure joy. I still feel that way when I paint.

June & July Downtown Member Artist: Luke Carlson

“Spirit Animal” 2019

 

My recent oil paintings depict animals that have inspired me in some way. I am interested in the idea of a “spirit animal” that we humans feel represents our personality in some way. “Turtle in the Bathroom” was inspired by a friend of mine who identifies with turtles. While painting, I dream up situations the animals could find themselves in, such as the new bathroom in my parents’ house. In a couple of the paintings, I have experimented with placing the animal subject in backgrounds that are influenced by places I have lived or traveled to. The tradition of representing animals goes back to the first images made by humans in caves.

 

Luke Carlson is from Schenectady, NY. He graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2014. He is looking forward to painting “en plein air” in Vermont this summer.
