for an Artist Talk by 
Catherine Kernan
Catherine Kernan is a painter and printmaker, and currently resides in Somerville, MA. She has widely exhibited her works in New England, most recently at the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA, the Soprafina Gallery in Boston, MA and in New York City at the Jason McCoy Gallery. 

Her work is in many institutional collections, including: the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Cleveland Museum of Art, Fogg Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Art, Boston Public Library and the Library of Congress.

She is co-founder, and partner of Mixit Print Studio. Kernan is currently also Director of Maud Morgan Arts, an art center in Cambridge, MA. 

"The premise that human relationships with the earth are dynamic, mutable, interactive, and move in ever-evolving cycles of repetition and variation underlies most of my work. My choices are guided by oppositional constructs of order and chaos, perception and obstruction, that manifest the control and serendipity of life.
In recent years I have abandoned the depiction of a particular place, preferring to work in a more abstract, improvisatory way, drawing on internalized experiences in a painterly process of controlled accident. Working at the interface between printmaking and painting, Using large-scale woodblocks in unorthodox ways as a transfer tool, I build images layer by layer without predicting the outcome. No longer a purist, I exploit any available tool or means to transfer color and form to surface. Interruption and interference with the "perfect transfer" are integral to the process".
