Abstract painter Katherine Greene describes her work as an exploration of color as it relates to a feeling, a thought, or an idea. It is a dynamic, intuitive process as each painting evolves and changes, giving life to something completely unexpected. The creative power of the subconscious mind is brought to the surface as the space is energized with color and texture.
In each painting, Greene creates a foundation by applying many layers of gesso, texture, and paint. She applies paint directly from the tube and mixes color on the canvas itself. This gives the color its luminosity and transparency. Much of her painting process involves non-judgmental observation, which serves to create a distance from the work.
Katherine Greene received a BFA degree from California State University, Humboldt, and completed courses in art history, drawing, painting, and graphic design. Her work is included in the corporate collections of HDR Engineering, The Lodge at Sonoma, McWilliams Ballard Law Offices, and Mandarin Oriental Hotels. In addition, Greene has placed her work with private collectors in the USA and Europe.
