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.
