Greetings From Tyvekia: Paintings and Prints by Kate Samworth 

As a creator of vivid and fanciful worlds, Kate Samworth explores a space that falls somewhere between fairy tales and the true-life experiences so many of us share. In this show, her subjects range from gaunt figures guiding boats down dark and flooded streets by lantern light to fantastical creatures and mythic kingdoms that occupy an alternate reality somewhere between Botero and Dr. Seuss. The human flotsam with bedroom furniture arranged in makeshift camps in the woods are the residents of Tyvekia, a transitional place named for Tyvek, the white insulation you see wrapped around wood-frame houses and buildings under construction. Tyvekia is a place of impermanence and becoming, a place where ordinary people experience their own personal epics of exile and return. — D. Eric Bookhardt
