Curatorial+Co. presents Darlings 2021, a group small works show consisting of over forty artists from across the world.
Kathryn Cowen is a Sydney based multidisciplinary artist working across the fields of painting, sculpture and installation. Drawing on science fiction tropes in order to re-present visions of reality and consider alternate possibilities; Kathryn is currently questioning how our ecology will adapt and change to deal with whatever the future brings.
Says Kathryn of her work: “Fragment IV, 2021, is part of a series of paintings on masonite inspired by my inner city verge garden. In an attempt to simplify the concerns of my practice during the strangeness of the past year; for this series I have focussed on colour, form and composition. While observing natural forms, shapes were initially cut out of paint sample cards, attempting to reference nature, yet not describe it. These ‘cut outs’ became the basis for the shaped masonite boards and subsequent paintings. A ‘hyper- real’ colour palette has always been a central feature of my work, used in order to prompt a shift in perception and render the familiar strange and peculiar; and so it is with this series of works; colours amplified and disrupted, applied to both the front and rear surfaces, hovering away from the wall; glowing.”
