As Above So Below by Bobbie Moline-Kramer
On display January 24 – April 23, 2018
Forsberg Riverside Galleries
Born in Fort Madison, Iowa in 1946, Bobbie Moline-Kramer moved place to place as a child and was always fascinated by art wherever the world took her. She went on to take her first art class at a community college in California with noted conceptualist John Baldessari. Eventually after being a flight attendant and seeing more of the international art world, Moline-Kramer graduated with a BFA as a double major from California State University in biology and illustration. After two decades as a successful commercial illustrator in the medical field, in 2006 she was able to devote herself fulltime to her fine art practice.
As Above So Below is an ongoing series of complex layered paintings. Within the abstract turmoil, created by energetic flowing brush strokes and drips, appear vestiges of the human form, tightly rendered eyes of monkeys and birds, and glimpses of their bodies. These works along with works from other series presented in the exhibition can be conceived as visual puzzles, but emotionally they evoke the artist’s response to constant metamorphosis, and a sense of personal loss.
