Kimberly DiNatale’s “Meditations on the Boundless” will be on exhibit at the Schlesinger Center Margaret W. & Joseph L. Fisher Gallery through Sunday, June 8.
“Meditations on the Boundless,” an exhibition of acrylic paintings on yupo paper, focuses on depicting the power, delicacy and inspiring beauty of nature’s all-encompassing vastness in biological systems, the Earth and the cosmos. The forms in her paintings reference expressive internal states through composition and color. They are essentially inscapes, or landscapes of the mind. DiNatale’s work is informed by themes of life, death and the fleeting nature of life.
“Repetition allows self-reflection and expression of atmosphere which is also present in color choices. I refer to nature, both the microcosm and macrocosm. The work is intuitive and inherently unpredictable, and the process of layering forms creates the complexity of organic growth in nature,” she said.
Gallery Manager Megan Peritore said, “The combination of large scale, joyous color and abstracted form work seamlessly to allow the viewer to become immersed in the emotional and psychological landscapes expressed in Kimberly DiNatale’s paintings.”
DiNatale earned a master’s degree in fine arts from Pratt Institute in New York in 1999 and has taught at community colleges in Dallas, Texas and Virginia. Her work has appeared in shows in New Jersey, Dallas, Chicago and Pennsylvania. She lives and works in Arlington.
The Fisher Art Gallery is located on the upper level of the Schlesinger Center on the Alexandria Campus. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and during performances. For information about the gallery, click here.
