Paintings by Kathryn St. Clair
Landscape paintings using the fluidity of paint to flow down naturally which adds to the overall composition.
I strive for a current relevance in my paintings amid a world of climate change, extreme weather, and fragile, vanishing ecosystems. The processes of “disturbance” and “succession” in nature, as well as art historical representations of the natural elements are things that influence my work.
The light is inextricably connected to the water, the land, and the atmosphere. These elements and the interconnected aspects of all living things have inspired me to create momentary, imagined, experienced, and idealized situations in my paintings. The fluid paint itself becomes a part of the landscape experience—the soil, the light, the sentiment—and it guides the forms that allude to the land.
