Kathy Karwat-Umbrellas
detail2
There is a complexity of palate which has an organic effect, as if she has created new mineral and life forms. Where the pointillists used a minute breakdown of colorful points to suggest the idea of the nature of light and color, Kathy Karwat's densely variegated color suggests a passage of time, an accumulation but also a revelation of things underneath, a message from the subterranean depth permeating the shell of reality. The depth and texture suggests a history within the layers.
