Kirby Fredendall is a painter raised in Carversville amidst the vibrant arts culture that has defined the
area since artists first arrived to establish residence on the old farms and in the eclectic river towns.
Her most recent work explores love of the color and light in the landscape and nearly always involve a
body of water, whether from her favorite lakes of the Adirondack mountains or her travels to coastal
Fredendall enjoys the manipulation of materials and how process in itself contributes to the life
and form of the final image. Dramatic, gestural lines describe the play of light and wind across the
water, while softer marks add life to the slow movement of rain laden clouds. Areas of sky, water, and
land are knit together with brushstrokes to represent their seamless interaction under the common
conditions of weather and time.
“It’s almost as if the artist was able to capture that elusive space between the physical landscape and the
mental manifestations of being there; she packages up that tenuous space and serves it to us on canvas.”
-Deborah Kostianovsky From InLiquid
