Referred to as gesture paintings by Kristin Doner, these acrylic paintings are executed without a plan. Relying instead on her subconscious intuition and familiar movements, her gestures are captured with acrylic and watercolor paint.
All of Kristin's acrylic and watercolor paintings are executed on paper. Done in two stages, first the deep stillness of the background is layered up. Later, gestures are made and responded to with more marking. Sometimes scrubbing and foreign objects are also used. Shown here are three larger works (24-36"), Bent Figure, Stand, Tall Figure, and three small studies, Reflection, Small Figure Study #9, and #25.
