"In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it." Ernst Fischer
About the Artist- Katheryn Geismar
For the past several years her work has explored images that hold a mystery: children jump to impossible heights, clouds and waves portend something elusive. In her most recent series of paintings, she uses her medium to depict the impact that man has had on the environment by exploring images in personal way and the role of art and how it relates to social issues.
Kathryn Geismar is a Somerville-based painter. She work in oils and does both still-lifes and portraits, always searching for the essence of the subject that she is trying to capture in paint. The work is more representational style rather than photographic replica of life. She accepts commissions for portraits and works out of her studio at Vernon Street in Somerville.
