WAS Artist of the Week…

Katherine Kadish, Painter, New York

Katherine’s paintings and monotypes represent the transitory nature of material things, and the value of each moment we fully experience. Color is the lifeblood of her work, followed by light and shadow … all elements that are impermanent and subject to context, time, weather, and memory.

By crossing cultures, geography and time, she means to suggest the inescapable connection between ourselves and a larger world. In some of the most recent paintings, she uses an invented vocabulary of shapes and colors to evoke the luxuriant, sensual quality of gardens. Layerings and traces indicate the passage of time and process of thought in paint and arise from memories of things seen and experienced over time and place. These pieces are a dance between color and shape, including the shape of the canvases, and they reflect on the inevitable role that transformation plays in nature and our existence.
