Kathryn Altus’ new oil paintings explore the majesty of the Pacific Northwest landscape. Working from memory and alluding to the history of the region, Altus creates ethereal compositions, implying a sense of near-infinite space with an atmospheric, minimal palette. Soft edges, subtle gradations of color, and many delicate layers of oil in her expansive landscapes impart a serenity an timeless character in these scenes.
