Kaethe Kauffman: Making the Invisible Visible - 3D virtual exhibition by Katharine T. Carter & Associates

Kaethe Kauffman: Making the Invisible Visible

Wed, 11/11/2020 to Fri, 12/31/2021

curated by:

A string dipped in paint and then wrapped around a woman’s back, neck, arm. The model makes
a subtle shift, and it’s recorded in the smearing, smudging, blurring of the line. That simple movement is documented and temporal is made permanent in Kaethe Kauffman’s photographs in her
continuing “Muscle Movement” series. A figure sits in a lotus pose, a yoga posture of meditation,
of calmness. Yet within the silhouette is a welter of high-energy... These acrylic and oil paintings
are from Kauffman’s also ongoing series, the “Mediators.” The photographs are cool, restrained,
conceptual; the paints are hot, explosive, expressive. On a purely formal representation, action and
stillness, but oddly so are Kauffman’s paintings. Although superficially different, they both emanate
from the same aesthetic sensibility and the same desire to make the invisible visible, the artist’s job in
Kauffman’s view. Just as the “Muscle Movement” series records the effort required to produce these
deceptively straightforward images, so do Kauffman’s “Mediators”. She makes the striving to reach
enlightenment as visible as she does the muscle movements of that series.
