Katherine Evans

The Artist

About Katherine

Kat Evans’ vibrant, large-scale paintings are a celebration of the expressive possibilities of color. Inspired by Josef Albers and the Color Field Movement, Kat (Katherine) Evans creates vibrant paintings with luminous hues and raucous color. Using bold brush strokes and often collage effects, she masterfully explores the interplay of color and texture to evoke an emotional response in each composition. Evans’ bold and compelling Color Field paintings have clearly struck a chord among collectors and galleries. Her artwork has been shown in numerous juried solo and group exhibitions; and Evans’ paintings can be found in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Artist’s Statement

Color interaction and its ability to evoke an emotional response are important elements in my work…pulling the imagination into moods, movement and natural forms. I have had a lifelong passion for, and involvement in, visual communication and expression. Painting and design have been the outlets for that passion.

I move into each piece intuitively, open to chance, applying complex color combinations that create a “visual vibration”. When I discover paintings within the paintings, I crop and layer parts of the whole to create a larger composition. At times I apply clear acrylic mediums to create depth and texture.

I am drawn to the color harmony of Helen Frankenthaler, Matisse, Rothko, Emily Mason and so many others. Images that emerge from the poems of Wallace Stevens, Emily Dickinson and Frank O’Hara inspire.
