Laney Contemporary presents saturation, an immersive exhibition by artist Betsy Cain.
This solo exhibition will showcase her new series of drip figures and mossheads, large-scale abstract landscapes and figurative works which saturate the viewer with the feeling of the south.
Savannah, GA (March 10, 2018) – Laney Contemporary Fine Art is pleased to present saturation, a solo exhibition by artist Betsy Cain. The reception will be from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, March 22nd. In addition to the reception, an open studio will be held on April 15th from 3 -7 pm at the artist’s studio. An informal artist talk will take place in the gallery on April 19th at 6 pm. Heavily rooted in abstractions with a figurative undertone, Betsy Cain’s paintings permeate the viewing plane. The large strokes and gestural motion in her paintings create a meditative and pneumatic state for the viewer. The movement in Cain’s work speaks to the ebb and flow of the tidal waters in Savannah and her relationship with the salt marsh. Based in Savannah for over thirty-five years, Cain draws inspiration from her southern surroundings of marsh, spanish moss, live oaks, and the almost visible humidity in the air. “My work is a saturation of pigment and the visual field. Painting isn’t thinking, it’s mind/body flow and a channeling of spirit.” This solo exhibition will showcase her new series of drip figures and mossheads, large scale abstract landscapes and figurative works which saturate the viewer with the feeling of the south.
