Abstraction in Nature, an exhibit from Nashville artist Judy Klich, will be on display Oct. 5-Nov. 14 at Freed-Hardeman University’s Troy Plunk Gallery in Bulliner-Clayton Art Center. The public is invited to attend a reception and artist’s talk Oct. 5, 5:00pm - 7:00pm.
The artist uses encaustic paint made from natural beeswax and pigment along with carbon transfers, metallic, oil pastels and graphite. The process involves heat, fire and the use of many different tools for mark making, carving and manipulation of the surface. The finished artwork is translucent and textured with layers and embedded elements that are often “hidden” within, much like nature, according to Klich.
“I seek to capture and preserve what I see in nature before it transcends and becomes something else,” Klich said. “It brings nature, that we sometimes take for granted, into a whole new realm of seeing… I focus on patterns, textures and visual forms in nature from the intimate, bugs-eye view to the average human view. I seek to preserve the beauty no matter how fleeting or temporary and capture that moment in time.”
She earned a Bachelor of Science in interior design from the University of North Carolina in Greensboro in 1990. Following an 18-year career as a professional commercial designer, Klich decided to paint bold abstract paintings. In 2011, she completed a Master of Fine Arts at the Academy of Art in San Francisco
