“Using close-up photographs, Kauffman studies women’s bodies. In a series of muscle studies, she examines range of motion in the moving female figure, comparing skin textures – the smoothness of youth to the rich texture of old age – and skin colors – from pale white to deep black – in all their differing muscular abilities.” –Irina Costache,Ph.d., Catalogue essay, p. 2, Kaethe Kauffman: Honoring Women, published by AVU Gallery, The University of Prague, The Czech Republic
Exhibiting: Muscle Movement series.

Including works by Kathleen Elliot and Bobbie Moline-Kramer

College Station, TX 77840
In PARALLEL FIELDS, three woman artists push to the edge of intimate bodily realities. Moline-Kramer deconstructs the human face into its emotional fundamentals, revealing disturbing depths, similar to the deceased British artist Francis Bacon. Elliot reveals our molecular relationship to the modified foods that go into our bodies and become our (modified?) flesh. Kauffman applies wet paint on the moving parts of the body, has the model move, and records her range of motion in the resulting image. Motion’s effect becomes invisible on the model’s skin and Kauffman allows the viewer to see this new and amazing reality of our relationship to our own bodies.
