A sample of the past 2 years of paintings by Cheryl Kline- Dancing Oracles series showed earlier in 2006 at Gallery C, Land and Sky series was shown and sold out at The Discovery Museum, CT in Jan. 2006 and McLean Gallery in Sept.

In her DANCING ORACLES series, Kline uses her body to achieve stunning psychological effects. Applying paint to her nude body, she places herself onto a painted surface. Affecting a variety of posses, she follows the impulses of her mind to release innate energies. Hence, her physical body becomes the primary vehicle for expression. By continuing to work the surfaces, she allows her creativity to explode into visions previously undivided. As in In Light Of Rhapsody, figures pulsate with life. They dance and float like sacred earth goddesses from a mythic past. Ritually ascending and transforming, they evolve and metamorphose into strong physical presences. By adding a projective dimension, Kline expands the sensation of pictorial space...

Current sky series on exhibit in Malibu, CA. Cheryl Kline's skyscapes are derived from an entire lifetime of looking at nature. She learned that each recurrence of an event could be entirely new, or different, if endowed by the viewer with a different emotion. Seeking this emotional content, while Kline’s views may sometimes be reminiscent of Church, she has looked more to the Luminists, such as Martin Johnson Heade, as her inspiration. ARTIST'S SENTIMENT Ahh...today you surprised me,<br /> you hid your smile until midday<br /> when you flooded my room<br /> like a symphony of fire<br /> leaving me flushed and aglow.<br /> And yesterday evening your mood of passion<br /> exploded with a vermilion embrace,<br /> a reminder of the paradise I seek,<br /> wondering and wanting tomorrow,<br /> for you to tease me more with your<br /> soft cloud whispers on a bed of ultramarine.<br /> Your infinite power is my addiction.<br /> I am in love with you...the sky.

Current work available in San Francisco, Kline will be exhibiting a new Sky series in May, 2007
