Imaginative meditations on life

INVOKING STORIES

Katherine Booth gravitated from graphic design to photography and painting.

“I love the both of them,” said Booth, who is also from Plattsburgh. “Over the course of my four years, the photography came through as what I really love to do the most. I just started working again in film, but the work in the show is digital. What I love about film is it is very hands-on and tactile. But I’m also very interested in digital work because of my work with graphic design. I found that I was able to communicate what I wanted to do in my work digitally as well.”

“Last Fall” is a digital print from her 10-piece series on reminiscing. She went back and photographed places where different life events occurred.

“Each story is personal to me,” Booth said. “I’m leaving it open to the viewer’s interpretation. The images create a universal space anyone can relate to. Each person can look at the images, and some of their own memories may come to mind without knowing the specific story.”

BREAKING CONSTRAINTS

“Trace,” an oil on Masonite, is a landscape by Madeleine Bialke, the daughter of a landscape painter. Her concentration is painting and printmaking. She works exclusively in oil. 

“I like the smell of the paint,” said Bialke, who is from Trumansburg, N.Y. “I think the colors are really luminous. I also like working with oil as a base medium.”

“Trace” was a milestone piece for her.

“That was the first time I really broke the constraints I had placed on myself in terms of color,” Bialke said. “My palette was much more restrained and more representational.”

DESIGN AND PRINT

Jason William Lowry, an East Coaster from Virginia and several places between to Plattsburgh, has a concentration in graphic design and a complement in printmaking.
