Katheryn Holt - 'Shade and breeze', mixed media on panel.
42 x 62 inch, framed
Katheryn Holt paints memory. Her abstract paintings are infused with half-remembered landscapes. She has been documenting her interior and exterior life through painting since she was 4 years old. Growing up on Hermosa Beach, Los Angeles, in the 1950s and 1960s, her frame of visual references was formed both by horizon lines extending across a seemingly endless Pacific Ocean and the cultural influences of post-World War 2 America. Holt studied painting at the University of Southern California and graduated with a B.F.A. from Art Center College of Design. She taught at New York’s School of Visual Arts, has won awards from the Society of Illustrators, and was included in American Illustratorand Outstanding American Illustrators. She has exhibited in many solo and group shows, including eight shows at Tria Gallery, New York; national juried competitions including the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, the Santa Cruz Art League, and the Bolinas Museum; and was featured in a recent display in the windows of Saks Fifth Avenue in San Francisco. She won first place at the American Pastel Society and is part of the permanent collection in the KunstMuseum, Hollfeld, Germany. Her work has been shown in New York, Germany, Texas, Georgia, Colorado, and California.
We hold properties of the surrounding environment within us. Nature is interactive and we are interconnected with nature. We are inseparable from the atmosphere as it moves through us. We see, we breathe, we hear, and we feel. As an artist, said Katheryn, "I feel compelled to put down in my paintings my visual perceptions of long remembered feelings about such atmospheric forces from my own life growing up on a beach, and living, as I do now, in a valley at the base of a mountain. What we observe in our surrounding natural world we can then feel in the presence of its atmospheric flow. In sharing our observations about such phenomena with each another, we open ourselves to new ways of seeing and the possibility of a deeper understanding about how we share these powerful forces which nature holds over, around, and within us all.
