Rebecca Katz

Rebecca Katz’s inspiration comes from the beauty of the atmosphere — of the sky and how it’s connected with the earth. When she see clouds, seductive with the constant movement of the atmosphere, she is reminded that life is constantly shifting and never stagnant. She works in acrylic and graphite, using many layers of glazes to achieve the luminosity of the atmospheric quality in her work.  She also works wet on wet and use drips to create texture and atmosphere, which alludes to what’s beneath the surface.  Layers and layers of paint are applied on the canvas before she even knows how the image will present itself in its final form. Her paintings are asking viewers to step into a world of possibility, mystery, magic, and atmosphere and to be transported through color and light and texture.
