Mackenzie FYL & Krisna Schumann @ Solstice Cafe
"We are pleased to invite you to Solstice Cafe for a coupled exhibition of new works by Mackenzie FYL and Krisna Schumann. Please join us on Friday August 17, from 6-9 p.m., for the reception and to meet the artists.
In this pairing of recent UW Painting & Drawing BFA graduates, the work represents two diverging paths of space in the painted image. They meet in the middle through the artists' sense of playfulness concerning nature, color, and the intimate sizes of the paintings and drawings.
Mackenzie questions the way we see landscape and figure through her punchy and saturated color palette. Her work was shown in the Jacob Lawrence Gallery and at the Sandpoint Gallery (both in Seattle) this past spring to exhibit her Bachelor of Fine Arts thesis.
Krisna imagines a world built from her own science-fiction, in which plants are slowly moving toward a state of awareness. Her painting thesis focused on playgrounds. This new direction seemed inevitable. She is also participating in a group exhibition called X Print Exchange at Pike Street Press this August. "
