Kara Joslyn teases out the delicate quality of her forms using polymer auto paint applied with a laborious process of masking and airbrushing, calling up tensions between the hand-made and the industrial.

Joslyn’s paintings — largely monochrome paired with her reflective surfaces — offer eerie depictions of pared down forms while examining the tensions between light and dark.
