Katherine Evans

Color interaction and its ability to evoke an emotional response are important elements in my work...pulling the imagination into moods, movement and natural forms. I have had a lifelong passion for, and involvement in, visual communication and expression. Painting and design have been the outlets for that passion.

I move into each piece intuitively, open to chance, applying complex color combinations. When I discover paintings within the paintings, I crop and layer parts of the whole to create a larger composition. At times I apply clear acrylic mediums to create depth and texture.

I am drawn to the color harmony of Helen Frankenthaler, Matisse, Rothko, Emily Mason and so many others. Images that emerge from the poems of Wallace Stevens, Emily Dickinson and Frank O'Hara inspire.
