Kathy Klompas

Organic Alchemy, Printmaking and Photography

As an artist I have journeyed from textiles to printmaking, now merging elements from both disciplines.

For many years I have documented the literal remnants of the textile industry along the Mohawk River below the Cohoes Falls.  Many of my monotypes reflect the chaos and beauty of these images, so I welcome the opportunity to present them side by side.

Printmaking allows me to respond to color, movement, emotion and balance with fluidity and freedom. I am free to shape thoughts and images as I play.

My monotypes, unique hand-pulled impressions, achieve their luminous qualities by building up a painterly surface of thick and thin dyes, complemented with traditional printmaking inks

Organically the process unfolds, as I allow the magic of discoveries and process to guide me. This alchemy creates expressions of dynamic flow, where bold colors dance with a life of their own.

Kathy’s exhibit would have been on display at Saratoga Public Library for the month of September.  Due to Covid-19 concerns, Saratoga Springs Public Library has not invited our artists to install their artwork again quite yet.
