Artist Statement Kathryn Arnold
The paintings are a result of intuitive nonobjective processes and contain 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 and encompassing, enveloping field and bewildering space. The grid at times becomes a reference point and the intrinsic relating of parts form poetry; an interplay between subjective and objective realities.
“If the doors of perception are cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.” William Blake
• Any mysterious, seemingly inexplicable power or influence; as, the “magic” of love.” (webster)
