Heidi Kirschner's Symphony of Color at Agora Gallery

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Charlotte artist, Heidi Kirschner in Elements of Abstraction.

Online PR News – 29-March-2012 – New York City – Award-winning painter Heidi Kirschner has had a lifetime of immersion in the arts, culminating in a wonderful body of work. Her beautiful and inspiring oil paintings render sky, earth, plants, and water in soothing impasto abstractions. Kirschner’s work with color is truly astounding. Each piece includes a variety of contrasting hues yet when we peer into the composition these disparate colors intermingle, forming a harmonious blend. Cerulean skies give way to rolling hills of burnt umber, khaki, and crimson. Tranquil, steely waters reflect the beauty from above and exude harmony. The artist particularly enjoys the effects of light in a natural environment. “The way it can illuminate a horizon line, electrify a sky, dance on water,” she explains. “It becomes a symphony of color.” In her approach, the inclusion of chance and mistakes helps open each painting to a realm of possibility and spontaneity as she develops a textural surface from each blank canvas.

Heidi Kirschner exhibits frequently all along the eastern seaboard. She lives and works in Charlotte, North Carolina.

About the Exhibition:
Two excellent collective exhibitions will be gracing the walls of Agora Gallery this spring, in addition to a remarkable solo exhibition featuring the works of Austrian artist Fred Friedrich. Elements of Abstraction presents art with the ability to induce a shift in perspective, allowing the viewer to reach new conclusions about what they see and experience that vision in different ways. Portals of Perception displays works which seem to breathe with creative energy and inspiration, and a passionate joy in the world and its complexities which they pass, in turn, to those who see them. In Fin de Ciel: Fred Friedrich / a Solo Exhibition the audience is introduced to the tremendously powerful artwork of a man who is constantly engaged in exploring the balance between the figurative and the abstract, the fluid and the definite. The result is a mesmerizing collection of works which speak across barriers of culture, place or time to reach fundamental elements of existence. The exhibitions will begin on March 30, 2012 and will run until April 19, 2012. The opening reception will take place on April 5, 2012. Entrance is free and all art enthusiasts are warmly encouraged to attend and meet the artists responsible for these enthralling creations.
