Speaker Series: Kathryn Kolb with Dynamic Symmetry, Apr 17

kolb 3
Please join Trees Atlanta and EcoAddendum on Thursday, April 17 for an exhibit opening and artist’s talk, Dynamic Symmetry, by fine art nature photographer Kathryn Kolb.

The exhibit opens at 5:00pm, with artist’s talk from 7-8pm. New works and old favorites from Kathryn’s series of flora, landscapes, and landscape details illustrate how artistic design and the design found in healthy environments are based on the same physical architecture – Dynamic Symmetry.

Many of Kathryn’s images, taken in Atlanta, Georgia and the Southeast, seem more akin to painting than photography, and her 45-min presentation includes how the geometry of aesthetic design, especially in photography, intersects with the design of trees, plants and landscapes–-the fascinating point where art, math and science become one.

Kathryn’s distinctive photographs of flora, landscapes and landscape details are based on several layers of design, from the natural forms of  trees and plants to the camera formats she uses. Her result is an organic, aesthetic blend of forms that also convey an essence of the energies of life in the natural world.
