Marjorie Kaye has lived in the Boston area for most of her life, with stops alon the way in Syracuse, NY to earn her BFA in Painting, as well as New York City in the 80s.
She is a painter and sculptor. Her work has been an exploration of opposites: form and color; organic and geometric; precision and chaos. Colorful and bold, her gouache paintings and sculptures are kinetic and energetic. Her work has been reviewed in many publications including the Boston Globe and ArtScope Magazine and has been shown extensively both locally and nationally, including galleries such as Galatea Fine Art in Boston, Atlantic Works Gallery in East Boston, Harbor Gallery, UMass Boston, and the Walter Wickiser Gallery in NYC. She was a 2016 winner of the Lillian Orlowsky/William Freed Foundation Grant from the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and was included in a group exhibition in their galleries. Also, Ms. Kaye was named a finalist in the Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship Awards in Painting.
Kaye is the founder of Galatea Fine Art in Boston, MA, a large artist-run gallery featuring over 39 artists from Boston and beyond. She was the director of that space from 2009 - 2017, as well as the owner. The gallery has transitioned into a non-profit and Ms. Kaye is remaining as Director. Some past projects also include the web-based Caladan Gallery, which ran for 10 years and exhibited hundreds of artists from all over the world, and the Lawrence, MA Gallery 181, which enhanced the community with the exhibition of local, national, and international artists.
She currently resides in Essex, MA.
In my latest gouache paintings, I have returned to flat panels, exploring form in its purity. The apex of creation resides internally, and I believe that release from the oppression of self-imposed structure allows the pure vision of infinite possibilities to be transmitted from the universal repository of higher design. My recent work transmits infinite combinations of geometric and organic components of the natural world, translating them into elemental combinations. I continue to be mesmerized by sacred geometry, intuitively responsive to the infinite expressions of light and matter. What I find miraculous about mathematics is that it breaks down the mechanics of the universe into sustainable equations. My work combines the discipline of geometric sequence with the diversion of the asymmetrical. Through my paintings, I channel and investigate the harmonies and mythology of higher perception and attempt to crystallize what goes beyond what the senses behold.
