KATE WILSON

Plurality of Expression
January 21 – February 10, 2017
Reception: Thursday, January 26, 2017 6-8 PM

Segmented or bleeding, but invariably multifaceted, Kate Wilson’s paintings in gouache, mixed media, and oil prioritize form. In Wilson’s more figurative works, planes of bodies and faces are reduced to vibrant patches of color. Meanwhile, each fluid abstract work layers and teases out ghostly forms, maintaining depth even at their haziest. Wilson strictly delineates colors in some areas, while allowing the pigments to seep outward into fuzzy rings in others.  The result is work that flows with motion and light where the carefully applied tones meet and contrast. Wilson finds inspiration in these dichotomies between control and entropy, sometimes taking a work to one extreme or the other and sometimes applying both techniques to the same canvas, achieving a focused balance. The forms in each painting, combined with the soft pinks, blues and neutrals that make up so much of Wilson’s work, create undeniably serene images. 

Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Kate Wilson lives and works in Los Angeles. Travel, femininity, and spiritual curiosity inform Wilson’s work, so that each painting becomes emblematic of the artist’s personal experience.
