KATHRYN MARKEL FINE ARTS, NYC
OPENING MARCH 2018
I have always been interested in the language of seeing, and creating a space where visual tension exists. At the heart of my work are 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 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.
