Artist Statement

Artist Statement
Kathryn Arnold c2021

My work contains two intertwining veins. One is filled with large, colorful oils on canvas. The other are my drawings which are black and white mixed media works on paper. Both display the density and layered mark-making that points to my process and content.

The work is a result of intuitive nonobjective processes and contains my search for visual magic. The sense of touch and chaotic energy of color and marks play an important role in building up layers that function to create an encompassing, enveloping field and bewildering space. Sometimes there is an introduction of a grid-like form with recognizable imagery playing upon it. These become reference points and their intrinsic relating form poetry, a type of interplay between subjective and objective reality.

from Ginsberg Howl ...and who therefore ran through the icy streets obsessed witha sudden flash of the alchemy...
