sophiegayot 300x239 A Pleasant Evening with Kim McCartys Watercolors

Artist Kim McCarty with her husband/restaurateur Michael and Sophie Gayot

By Sophie Gayot

 I am not an art critic, but starting a Saturday evening discovering Kim McCarty’s watercolors was rather pleasant. Her ambiguous fluid figures made me think about the human form in new and intriguing ways. There is no struggle in her designs; they are easy on your eyes, and rather soothing.

 

 In order to avoid the colors to run on the paper, McCarty can only paint horizontally; and it becomes a challenge for her knees when doing the near-size-life-size upper torsos! Her exhibition can be seen at the Kim Light Gallery, 2656 S. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90034 until May 16th.  McCarty’s work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, UCLA Hammer Museum and the Honolulu Academy of Art. She is the wife of Michael McCarty, the owner of the legendary romantic restaurant Michael’s in Santa Monica, which will be celebrating its 30th birthday in May.
