The work of local artist Meg Kremer is being featured at the Los Alamos Mesa Public Library, upstairs gallery.
The “New Work” exhibit is a selection of elegant and evocative drawings and prints from a project that started November of 2011 and was completed this past January.
“The work is the result of a disciplined process producing one or two drawings a day,” Kremer said. The subject of each piece was an arrangement of organic and inorganic material such as dried wild flowers and stems collected along the White Rock canyon rim. Sand dollars and smooth stones were gathered from an Oregon beach. “Some work has a serious feel to it, others are whimsical. Many have a lyrical quality,” she said.
The work is rendered in a predominately square format using a limited color palette; this constraint provided a physical structure for the series.
The mixed media work includes graphite, pen and ink, colored pencil and oil-based ink. “I use these alone or sometimes in combination,” Kremer said, “Line mark making and design are emphasized and much of the work is abstract in form. The challenge of creating work, everyday, over an extended period of time provided a premise and purpose of the series and also reinforced the discipline, the frustration and the joy of working.”
