|Architecture and Landscape in the Abstract
is the first collaborative exhibit of a dynamic duo, glass sculptor Martin Kremer and painter Cate M. Leach. It was
showcased at the Flinn Gallery at the Greenwich Library, in Greenwich, CT in May and June
Martin Kremer curated this exhibit. With no preconceived ideas, he went shopping for an artist whose paintings would complement his architectural sculpture. In viewing the work of Cate M. Leach, a fellow member of the Silvermine Guild, he found his ideal match.
Leachs compelling abstract landscapes
in oil and acrylic create moods as haunting as a powerful theatrical set - which is not
surprising as she closely experienced many stage settings during her years of dancing with
George Balanchine in the New York City Ballet. Artists who have influenced her include
Turner, Diebenkorn and Rauchenberg. "A blank canvas is not unlike an empty stage. My
intention is to communicate drama and energy in this limitless space". Whether in her
large six-foot square canvases or more intimate five-inch square collages, Leach achieves
these goals. She immediately recognized the synergy between her work and Kremers.
Says Kremer, "Cates work gives mine context and mine gives hers depth. Or vice-versa?"
