Westbeth Gallery presents the dynamic show “Worlds Seen & Unseen” by five contemporary New York-based women artists: Karin Batten, Caroline Golden, Maggie Hinders, Carolyn Oberst, and Barbara Rachko.

About

Through variations in media, form, and composition, their new works bring unseen worlds into focus. From far away worlds hail masks and animals, myths, inner dreams, and human interactions, offering female perspectives of new environments to be seen.

KARIN BATTEN spent her early years in Hamburg, Germany and London, England, where she attended art school before immigrating to the USA. In her travels throughout Europe, the Americas, India, and North Africa she draws and takes photographs of the environment, and creates mixed media paintings that recall these surroundings. She explores abstraction and representation to focus on the point of balance where the two worlds meet.

Caroline Golden’s collages explore familiar stories and legends from a unique perspective. Caroline draws forth iconic characters, their possessions and the interior spaces they inhabit in a dimensional relief of found paper imagery.

MAGGIE HINDERS is a painter and graphic artist. Her paintings of imaginary animals, derived from Internet photos, garden ornaments, and toys. With their fractured, Their colors kaleidoscopic—wryly echo the discordant opinions we hold of ourselves. 

CAROLYN OBERST is a pioneering interdisciplinary artist working across painting, drawing, mixed media, and wood relief.  Oberst combines figures and objects with abstract elements, which are placed in dream-like, non-literal settings.

BARBARA RACHKO is an American contemporary artist and author , she uses her large collection of Mexican and Guatemalan folk art­—masks, carved wooden animals, papier mâché figures, and toys—to create one-of-a-kind pastel-on-sandpaper paintings. These combine reality and fantasy and depict personal narratives.
