KATHERINE SCHOLZ

Masters of the Imagination: The Latin American Fine Art Exhibition
September 16 - October 7, 2014
Reception: Thursday September 18, 2014 6-8 PM

Katherine Camargo’s mixed media works on canvas are rich in earthy hues and loaded with dramatic textures. Incorporating cardboard, paper, fabric, ceramic and metal into a distinct flavor of collage, her works offer a refreshing vision of culturally diverse, vibrant social life. Hailing from Brazil, which boasts a mix of peoples comprising its ancestral heritage, her work upholds a spirit of cross-cultural bricolage. After working professionally overseas in New York, Camargo returned home to her native Brazil some years ago and became heavily influenced by the strong currents, colors and themes characterizing Brazilian folk art. Interested in the intersection of the social and its omnipresent play of color, shadow, texture and light, Katherine Camargo’s works are at once chaotic and calm, cheerful and full of an awareness of the artist’s cultural heritage.

Katherine Camargo was born in Itararé, São Paulo, Brazil. The artist moved to New York City in 1998 where she studied at The Art Students League. She has exhibited widely including in Norway, China, South Africa, Dubai, New York City and her native Brazil.
