Continuing its streak of presenting winning exhibits from emerging and established artists alike, Provenance Gallery hosts the opening of “Crux,” a new body of work from San Antonio painter Kat Shevchenko. According to the artist, “Crux” is a “documentation of the internal world of the psyche in the moments of upheaval.” As with much of Shevchenko’s work, these paintings are frequently symbolic and surrealistic, often employing humor to muse on the fragility of life, especially in terms of feminine embodiment. With this show, Shevchenko seeks to show, using symbols from nature, “what is simmering beneath the surface of consciousness.” In this sense, these are deeply psychological works, but they are also works that attempt to, at least symbolically, chart the psyche’s response to suffering, stress and, eventually, transformation.
