Artist Reception: March 19 / 5:00 – 7:00 PM
This solo show is an especial, intimate selection of smaller-scale work, spanning a decade; this show reflects only a glimpse into the otherwise vast, eclectic, ever-evolving range of this multidisciplinary visual artist, Kim Frohsin. Over almost three decades, she has, and continues to, mine new and challenging subjects, concepts and themes in her artistic endeavors; her range is rather vast and seemingly limitless.
Inclusions Gallery presents a limited, yet thoughtful array of some of her figurative work, all of which is quite literally drawn directly from her collaboration with live models in the studio. Also, included are samples of what she deems “still lives”, gleaned from her archives. Frohsin, a singular visual “studio artist”, is unerringly authentic to self, an artist who is constantly pushing her own boundaries at will, exploring both deeply personal and universally humanistic themes via her art. She states that all of her chosen media to date—photography, printmaking, collage, painting, drawing — are extremely interdependent and fluid in leading her into whatever comes next in her “gesamtkunstwerk”*.
*A Gesamtkunstwerk (German pronunciation: [gə.ˈzamtˌku̇nstˌveɐ̯k], translated as total work of art, ideal work of art, universal artwork, synthesis of the arts, comprehensive artwork, all-embracing art form or total artwork) is a work of art that makes use of all or many art forms or strives to do so. The term is a German word which has come to be accepted in English as a term in aesthetics.
