Katherine Warren: capstone
|Warren, Katherine, artist
|Colorado State University Art Department capstone project.
|Capstone contains the artist's statement, a list of works, and images of works.
|The artist's statement: My interest in painting organic subjects stems from my love of nature. Everything from a snow capped mountain to a simple flower - the beauty found in nature provides endless inspiration for my work. My art focuses on natural subjects abstracted into organic forms of bright color and flowing line. I make multiple sketches of a plant from various angles and proximities that I then layer together to form a final image. This combination of multiple aspects of the plant is a way to get a sense of a plant in its entirety, while still highlighting certain characteristics of interest. Each plant that I choose to paint has a particular unique element that I wish to emphasize. Whether it be the papery texture of a poppy petal, or the stripped patterning of a passionflower, each plant has a particular component of beauty that I bring to life. The fluid line and saturated hues of my pieces work together to reveal the simple beauty of nature.
