KATHRYN MARKEL FINE ARTS, NYC
OPENING MARCH 29, 2018
I have always been interested in creating a space where visual tension exists. At the heart of my work is deciphering the language of seeing and exploring Painting’s creative problems and questions---and redefining what those questions can be. This query has led to a pictorial examination of my own process and a visual vocabulary that distills the image to the essentials of mark making. Boxes of color, pedestals, and fragments of paint are stacked or placed within my paintings and drawings as a way of presenting an image that elevates the parts of the whole, thus building a composition via deconstruction.
