Acrylic on canvas

This work will be shown in Darlings 2021, Curatorial+Co.’s annual small works group show. Darlings was created in response to the 2020 pandemic as a joyful way for artists and collectors of all backgrounds to come together and celebrate creativity and unity.
Kaitlin begins each work with a single image, comprised of shapes, colours and energy and hastily captures it on canvas whilst it remains vivid in her mind. Once the first layer is complete, she abandons the original idea and focuses on what the work next calls for.
Kaitlin collects images of flowers, landscapes and patterns which, together, combine as points of inspiration. She then creates works that abstract these forms, combining washes of colour with thick strokes, intricate patterns and spatial balance resulting in paintings that dance with shape and colour.
