Catamount Arts is pleased to announce the opening of Kata Hull: Thin Ice, an exhibition exploring the effects of climate change by the artist Kata Hull, on view in the Rankin Gallery of its St. Johnsbury, Vermont arts center from May 4-June 11, 2022.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: Kata Hull’s 13 paintings and mixed media works on paper are part of her ongoing series exploring global warming and its consequences. Conscious that the planet is heating up at an alarming rate, but aware of the complex political conversations that surround the issue, Hull’s body of work is her own personal “expression of the perilous situation we’re in.” Layers of colors, marks, patterns, and imagery invoke elements of earth, water, fire, and air. The vertical formats suggest core samples and the stratification of incremental changes occurring over time. “Like shifts in temperature, shifts in human awareness have consequences,” the artist has said about sensuously painted work that is both abstract and specific at the same time. “What we pay attention to matters. Everything is related, often in ways we cannot see – like it or not, we are all in this together.”
