Kathryn Arnold: a portfolio site




Text and Image



Paintings: marks, kinetic sensation, chaotic energy, a building, a destruction, mental, emotional, complex and bewildering spaces, autobiographical references, major dreams, minor non-dreams.

The black and white works with text function as a notebook for thoughts, my prose, dream references.

Some are more elaborate than others such as 'u no blu b u' which contains full conversations. Many of the paper 100! works use text and image and they function as wall installations.

Others are more poetic renditions relating to things I have seen or experienced or dreamed.

Text in art is an intriguing display of the dichotmy between sensing and context/literal.

The linear markings of the text develop into a surface texture and may or may not be meant to be read.
