New Art Exhibition ‘Kristen Gossler: Confluence’ at Jamaica Plain Branch Library

In Kristen Gossler's art exhibition at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library, "Confluence," the expressive abstract paintings pose a question, wanting to provide an interactive experience to the viewer. Gossler uses a variety of materials, including water-based pigment, screen painting ink, sumi ink and acrylic paint. The RISD graduate utilizes "a mental inventory of repeated forms found in both the natural and manmade worlds, provoking a familiarity and comfort in the viewer through subliminal means." “The unconscious use of these symbols is not art – it is the cognitive filter of the artist that gives these paintings relevance and meaning as a body of work,” said Gossler. Her new exhibit uses earthy browns, warm yellows, soft greens, burnt oranges, while centering bold shapes and natural textures.
