Kathryns paintings are drawn from lived experience of a place with a hint of imagination. Influenced by the cubist movement and the way they reduced their subjects to geometric forms, Colour palletes are arrived by saturating hints of colours found in nature. By combining these two approaches in tandem with strong graphic qualities and use of pattern, Kathryns work straddles abstraction and representational approaches to painting.
A walk at low tide between Urquhart Bluff and Aireys Inlet is the subject of these works.
You might recognise these places but they are not named, leaving you the viewer to discover.
The shapes in the geology of the region is a constant inspiration in her works.
