M. Katherine Hurley
There is a mystic touch to the landscapes of M. Katherine Hurley. Her transitions in tone between leaves and sky or meadow and water are as subtle as the shift between stillness and a breeze – between stillness and a ripple in the water. An artist with an eye, a heart, and a deep reverence for landscape, she sees a chapel in the form of a barn, sanctuary in the shade of the forest, and she can experience communion in a cluster of color. The mystic landscapes of M. Katherine Hurley exist beyond the physical; they lie in a region between the remembered and the imagined – a space that is the tone and color between leaves and the sky.
