Bobbie Moline Kramer -- ABSTRACT NARRATIVES
Exhibition Dates: June 5 – June 30, 2019
A READING of POETRY, FICTION & NON-FICTION: FRIDAY, JUNE 14 from 6 - 8 PM
Tim Casey, Matt Longabucco & Cecelia Watson- with Q & A and Reception.
Join Lichtundfire for an evening of Poetry, Fiction & Non-Fiction by 3 authors & faculty colleagues of the Bard College Language & Thinking Program, in conjunction with Bobbie Moline- Kramer's Solo Exhibition ABSTRACT NARRATIVES, an exhibition of mixed-media paintings- a convergence of figuration and abstraction. Moline-Kramer's renderings of natural elements intermingle with abstract-expressionist brushstrokes - blending reality with illusion to create abstract narratives
TIM CASEY is an artist and writer born in Oklahoma and based in Manhattan. He has articles in various journals on motorcycling, horses, birds, and fly-fishing, and short fiction in the Halcyone Literary Review and the New Guard Literary Review. He teaches in the Language and Thinking Program of Bard College in Annandale, and at Bard HS Early College in Manhattan. He recently had a solo show of paintings at Scholes Street Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He writes as a companion to his painting and uses both as vehicle to examine questions of desire and loss. He will read a recently published short story and a short section from a novel, and an essay on migration.

His poems and essays have appeared recently in Mirage, Lana Turner, and The Poetry Project Newsletter. He teaches at New York University and Bard College, and lives in Brooklyn. He will read from his chapbook, Heroic Dose, & an excerpt from a long essay-in-progress about the filmmaker Jean Eustache.

BOBBIE MOLINE-KRAMER, trained as a biomedical illustrator, has made her way with each work through layers of representation and abstraction to arrive at the surface of an intuitive amalgam of both. Forged with brush, oil paint, ink, colored gesso, oil stick, graphite, thread, Moline-Kramer's work is both, conceptual and spiritual. Her careful gestural brush strokes and anatomical drawings merge with a free movement and a distinct sense of the materials applied. Evading prompt pinpointing or easy characterization, her work remains as much rooted in representation as in abstraction.
Bobbie Moline-Kramer was born in Iowa and lives and works in Southern California. She studied Illustration at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and holds a BFA in Bio- Medical Illustration from California State University, Long Beach, CA. Her work has been exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions in galleries and institutions throughout the US, and has been subject to much critical acclaim such as in Artes Magazine; artdaily.org; CultureCatch; Huffington Post; Los Angeles Times; WhiteHot Magazine of Contemporary Art among others.
Bobbie Moline-Kramer's ABSTRACT NARRATIVES is on view at Lichtundfire Wed-Sat 12-6 pm; Sun 1-6 pm.
This exhibition has been conceived in collaboration with Robert Curcio of curcioprojects.
