New Works of John Mac Kah

Join us for a night of creativityat the Highlander Gallery on April 13th, 2017.

Wonderful Art, Classical Guitarist, Wine &Hors d'oeuvres will be served.

"I paint because some places in the natural world move me in very particular ways. They keep me in touch so that I am a part of the natural world, and I feel, if nothing else, honored, to be able to capture a piece of that drama.

Paying attention to the subject, while attending to the surface of the wood or linen. The oils, varnish, pigments, brushes - all natural materials themselves, it all helps connect me to the work and the work to place.

In the end, that world is the ephemeral: the reflected and angled light, the dust at that time of day, evidence of what went before. And it takes time, sometimes many days of immersion in a particular place, building up layers that mirror my experience of the moment.

I like to let the painting be an experience in itself, speaking for the natural world, a captured remnant of observation and memories."
