Lori Warner Studio/Gallery features Kate Cordsen, Ravine Series

Event Date/Time

Jul 13, 2013 to Sep 30, 2013

This event occurs weekly on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Description

Lori Warner Studio/Gallery features Kate Cordsen, Ravine Series

The Lori Warner Studio/Gallery is pleased to feature the otherworldly photography of Kate Cordsen with a solo exhibition of Cordsen’s landscapes entitled Ravine.  This series of large, minimalist work will be on display from July 13 - September 30, 2013, featuring a gallery visit by Cordsen on Sunday, August 18.

 

 “I am very selective in offering solo exhibitions,” said Warner.  “At most I will feature two artists a year, which allows me to carefully consider the integrity and process of each artist’s work.”   “I felt an immediate excitement the first time I saw Kate Cordsen’s photographic work.  Her huge, dramatic prints are widely collected and are often purchased by designers, notably her sold out River series. In this new work, Ravine, Cordsen is reinterpreting the traditional landscape into something modern and ambiguous.”

 

Kate Cordsen’s work has a transcendent quality. Her landscapes are often surprisingly emotional and have a deceptive simplicity. They are not directly representative of a particular place or time but rather a metaphorical expression of the land. “My work boils down to a few fibers of form and emotion. I love the structure and shape of the landscape as well as the innocence. I hope that is conveyed in my work.” Cordsen has an extensive background in the fine arts. She studied photography at The International Center of Photography, fine arts at Parson’s and the history of art at Harvard University.

 

Cordsen’s travels have greatly influenced her spare, minimalist aesthetic. “I am drawn to watery scenes particularly where the land and water meet. I have seen some extraordinary places these last few years but, truthfully, none that inspire as much as the Connecticut River Valley.”  Cordsen walks the trails in Lyme and Essex almost daily. “It is very impressive how much preserved land there is in this region. This series, Ravine, started on the Ravine Trail in Lyme but ultimately was shot all over Connecticut and New York.”

 

The collaboration between Cordsen and Warner is a natural one. Both are artists who maintain studios in the area and draw inspiration from the Connecticut landscape. Cordsen adds, “Lori Warner has a tremendous eye and is quite well respected in the art world. I feel fortunate to be on her roster of artists. Furthermore, she and I have a great deal of respect for the artistic heritage of this area.” The Connecticut River Valley is well established as an important place in the history of American art and is still a vibrant community of artists. With that, Warner and Cordsen have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from two selected prints to The Lyme Land Trust and The Connecticut River Museum.

 

The Lori Warner Studio/Gallery is a unique source for artwork and objects that make a lasting impression.  “My goal is to not just exhibit artist’s work, but rather to foster a collaborative relationship between the gallery and each artist,” said Warner.  The gallery is located at 21 Main Street in Chester, Connecticut.  (860) 322-4265.   http://www.loriwarner.com.
