This afternoon, I’ve been reading an issue of God’s Friends, a newsletter from Saint Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco (it’s available as a downloadable PDF file), and have been quite struck by the painting of Olivia Kuser, which is featured in the November 2004 issue.
There is a moving, almost haunting feel to some of her studio work. And both a darkness but also a hope.
This is called ‘Flow’ (etching ink on panel) 1996.
You can see more of her work at www.oliviakuser.com
