Katherine Grossfeld
Solo Exhibition
Artist locale:  Durham, NC, USA
Style of work: Still Life - Realism
Medium: Oil on Linen


 "I have always been excited by light as it wraps itself around objects, throws shadows, defines color and creates drama. Having always been drawn to realism, I find the challenges in drawing and painting from life the foundation of my artistic journey. Capturing light is the chief objective in my oil painting process. I especially love painting glass and reflections, and find that I am often drawn to saturated colors. I choose objects, move them around and arrange lighting until they suggest a narrative to me. When I paint, the focus it demands takes my full concentration and I am removed from the cares of the day. I am always aware of how fortunate I am to spend almost every day pursuing beauty and joy, and I hope that my paintings can give others the same pleasure." Katherine

"The transcendence art allows us is rare and precious. Experiencing art in our daily lives gives us peace, joy and escape from chaos. There is power in beauty." Katherine
