Monotypes – Cultural Discoveries through Color and Repetition
March 4-29, 2015
Kristine DeNinno, winner of the 2014 National Small Works juried exhibition and a new member of the gallery, is exhibiting a series of prints at WPG through March 29.
In a series of multilayered monotypes, she invites the viewer into an abstract space immersed in varying layers of texture, color and form. The prints are large in scale and leave much room for the observer’s own narrative and interpretation.
Kristine describes her approach: “I am fascinated with the manipulation of a two-dimensional surface to create a dialogue with three-dimensional space. The qualities of form, depth, and materiality of painting, design, and drawing inform each of my prints.”
In addition to being a busy studio artist, Kristine is deeply committed to her work teaching in local community settings. In the photo shown here she can be seen with students at THE ARC Community Center, a year-round museum outreach program that works with D.C. youth and families. (On the corner of the table you can see her little printing press she travels with.)
Kristine, who has also worked for several years in the field of Interior Design, holds a BA in Studio Art and is completing her Master’s degree in Teaching from the Corcoran College of Art and Design/GWU.

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 12-5.
