About Katherine

My paintings depict an ever-changing fantasy world where Buddhist symbols, blood clots, rain forests and coral reefs collide and intertwine. Each piece functions as a man-sized porthole into a landscape alive with minute details, firing synapses and interlocking systems. This is achieved through the use of perversely careful mark making and the creation of tiny minutia–details that eventually combine to create larger, overarching systems that define the whole painting. I work with ambiguous shapes that could function as elements in radically different environments in the real world–a scabby circular shape becomes a marsh object covered with barnacles, a white blood cell, a cratered moon. Thus, the real environments of reefs, rain forests, outer space and neurobiology are smashed together to create one incongruous whole. I introduce a new context to these elements, and through my exploration of their relationships, incite a subtle tension between them. I double majored as an undergraduate in both art and Human Development, and the vast, complex recesses of our bodies, brains, and environments are a continual source of inspiration.
