Kathryn Milillo Oil Paintings
I am often drawn to our vanishing farmscape and the crumbling barns and buildings that challenge our current values. I especially love the haunting imbalance of windows and doorways in farm architecture. These aging matriarchs and patriarchs sheltered and nourished us, and their dignity in the face of their diminished value is something I want to honor.
In the process of painting, there is a meditative element to the choice “is it this color, or this?” which has always enthralled me. Oil’s tactile qualities — its layers, scumbles and glazes — help me place these two-dimensional pieces in a three-dimensional mindframe.
I am influenced in my painting choices by a background in English literature and graphic design. Words like “grace,” “refuge,” and “abandonment” are veins of gold to be mined. Playing with light and dark, color complements and negative spaces, I aim to create a visual poem.
Matt Brown-Woodblock Prints
My printing approach follows the traditional moku hanga method of woodblock printing developed in Japan during the 18th century. This technique was first practiced in this century by Arthur Dow and others as part of the Arts and Crafts movement that flourished at the beginning of the 20th century.
Each print is numbered and edition size is also shown. The date describes the actual month the print was made (the entire edition is not always printed at the same time). If it is marked 2nd, 3rd state, etc. this indicates a significant re-working of the print and a new edition.
My imagery is mostly of New England: lakes and mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire. I have also pursued imagery inspired by trips to the coast of Maine, some of New York City, a few from out West; I have worked print images of my family, of travels to far off places, of art made by other artists. I am fascinated by how two-dimensional art changes the way we see our world. I love making things by hand, especially using this older printing method utilizing the basic materials of wood and of water.
