Claire Kahn introduces her ninth solo exhibition at Patina Gallery.
Enlivened by the visceral vibrancy of our natural graces, Claire celebrates one’s spirit through the intrinsic distinction of the birthstones. Through vivid, poignant expression, she enlivens the heart, exploring the impassioned beauty of the soul.
Color is everything in this show. There’s a feeling that corresponds to each birthstone. It’s very specific and different to every other stone I’ll use in the collection. Each one has its own unique personality, and my intention is to celebrate that through the use of color.”
Meet the maker as she takes us through her seasons of time. Immerse in works embellished with January's garnet, February's amethyst, the aquamarine of March, April's diamond and more, in this amalgam of earthly contemplation.
Jovial August citrine pleasantly dances betwixt the bright, beguiling assemblage of peridot, both upon a softened stream of muted pattern & progression. Lush tanzanite teardrops of December embolden their intoxicating arrangement, dazzled by the blazon luster of high karat gold. The maker imagines a measure of opulence to satiate their sumptuous delight.
Claire Kahn’s Signs of Life imagines peaceable creations to entice our sheer fascination as one is charmed through the year. In turn, her collection contends the mind with enchanting impressions to satisfy the bounds of our limitless infatuation.
