Kim McCarty - Cannabis Botanicals
Mister Green Life Store is thrilled to have a series of cannabis botanical watercolors by acclaimed painter Kim McCarty currently on view at our new Los Angeles flagship store, and will remain throughout the summer season.
The series (click to enlarge):
Like blurry afterimages drifting past closed eyelids, Kim McCarty's watercolors hover between presence and absence, innocence and wisdom, and past, present, and future. Working rapidly, at times using only a single color and at others a haunting, bruise-inspired palette of acid yellows, greens, and browns, McCarty's portraits evoke the sense of uncertainty, ambivalence, anxiety, and loss with which we view today's generation. A graduate of UCLA (MFA) and the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena (BFA), McCarty solo exhibitions include Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York and David Klein Gallery., Detroit MI., Kim Light Gallery; Cherry and Martin, Los Angeles, Briggs Robinson, New Yok, Group exhibitions include Showstudio, London, Eve, Subliminal Projects, Los Angeles, LA Emerging Artists, at the Dominique Fiat Gallery.
