Please join us at the opening of a solo exhibition of oil paintings and
works on paper by Kamilla Talbot. Featuring new pieces that are large in scale, with a bold, metaphorical color palette and mixed media of
watercolors and silkscreen patterns.

Talbot’s paintings are landscape-based, many of them painted “en plein
air,” starting with motifs of the trees and ponds of the Catskills, urban landscapes from Governors Island, and the rocky coast of Norway.

Recently returned to New York from a painting residency in Norway and heading to Italy to paint in the spring, Kamilla is available for a gallery tour and/or interview.

Talbot studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the New York
Studio School. Her work has been shown in numerous galleries in New York, including Lori Bookstein Fine Art, Lohin Geduld Gallery, Kouros Gallery, the Painting Center and the Bowery Gallery. She has had solo shows at Bruno Marina Gallery in New York and the Johannes Larsen Museum in Denmark. She is currently the artist in residence for the National Park Service on Governors Island. Past honors include an art symposium in Norway, and residencies at the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation (Maine), the Vermont Studio Center, the World Trade Center, and organizations in Newfoundland and Iceland. She has taught at the Art Students League and the New York Studio School, and currently teaches at the National Academy.

Painter Kamilla Talbot had a StudioScapes Residency during January and February of 2001 on the 91st floor of the North Tower in the World Trade Center. During that time, Kamilla soaked in the views and had a prodigious output of paintings. The painting above is of the view towards Brooklyn, with the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges visible in the lower third of the canvas.

So much was lost on 9/11, that it hardly seems appropriate to mention the loss of the view. It was incredible.

From Kamilla, About her Art
Painting en-plein-air/outside is intense and immediate. The light changes, shadows travel and dissolve, a barge in the harbor moves, and – brush in hand – I try to capture the special light of the moment.

My goal when painting is to capture the beauty and transience of light in a landscape. As a child, I spent my summers in Denmark, close to nature and surrounded by family, many of whom were painters. My great-grandfather, Johannes Larsen, was a Danish painter whose subjects were nature and in particular, birds, on the island of Funen. His legacy has strongly influenced my work. His sober yet loving attention to weather and landscape evoke a strong sense of place. Cool northern light and how it plays on the water are endlessly fascinating to me and I delight in the dichotomy of nature in the urban landscape of NY. My interest in the landscape has led me to extended residencies in Iceland, Newfoundland, Maine and Vermont, as well as painting trips around the United States, Scandinavia and Europe, but the place I always return to to paint is New York.

About Kamilla
Kamilla is a watercolor instructor at the National Academy, NY and has taught watercolor and oil painting at the Art Students League and the New York Studio School. She is the artist in residence for the National Park Service on Governors Island.
