"Leitmotif" at Good News Cafe in Woodbury CT

Artist Katie Danahay Samuelson's new show "Leitmotif" will be  on view through June 2nd, 2015 at Good News Café & Gallery, 694 Main Street South in Woodbury.

Katie Danahay Samuelson's artist statement expresses that her recent work continues the exploration of dark vs light, while at the same time exploring the nature of the paint medium itself. The paint is both manipulated and allowed to run free, to create shapes
and colors as it flows and mixes. Use of thinned paint creates both drips and broad fields of color, some with hard edges and some that are soft. Colors blend and overlap, creating new and complex colors. Thicker paint strokes give weight and clarity to some of the shapes. Graphite and oil pastels are sometimes used to add line and texture.
While the forms suggest cityscapes or landscapes, they are intentionally vague and melt into the light around them. Light colors contrast with darks, suggesting conflict, yet the light dominates and creates a sense of optimism and possibility. The intent is to engage the viewer's imaginations and memories as they connect with the images in their own personal way.
Good News Café & Gallery is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily; closed Tuesdays and open from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday's. For more information visit
