Artist’s Statement by Kathryn Poch

My paintings reflect the unpredictability and surprises of nature. Vivid colors, aggressive strokes, deep infinite space culminate in imaginary settings. Influenced by my passion for music, rhythms, contrasts, and spacing embolden my work. After loading the canvas with pigment, I use my fingers, brushes, and squeegees to move the paint, either by wiping it away, or layering color over color. Just as a pianist can create a variety of sounds by touch, I can work the surface with wild determined strokes or tender caresses.
