Elaine Kehew- The Sugar Canes (Sweet Ruminations). Opening January 23 at Le Rustique. 1-4 pm

In this most recent body of work, the artist has explored the possibilities of the sugar cane from classical nature-morte to contemporary grids of linoleum stamping. Elaine was initially drawn to the canes for their formal properties: the cylindrical shape and the way the sun illuminated their segmented forms. Further observation, however, revealed a spectrum of color from crimson to chartreuse and a rich ochre in the afternoon light. The cane ends, when chopped, are circles that swirl into spirals and reveal another mystery.

Elaine Kehew lives in Nairobi with her husband and daughter. Born in upstate NY, she received a bachelors degree from the University of New York at Geneseo and studied painting at the Corcoran School in Washington DC, and with CM Dupre at the Art League in Alexandria, VA. She has exhibited several times in the USA. This is her first exhibition in Nairobi.
