Artists Statement
My current paintings are composed of several layers that blend and combine.
The first step of the painting process is to transform the theme or my thought into an abstract shape or patterns on a canvas, and this forms the first layer. The shapes usually bear some symbolisms or represent a decomposition of a thought that will be later realized with ink drawing.
The following step is to add a layer of colors. This is done through a dynamic process of a spontaneous color play, and I am trying to capture the essence or feeling of the object in the foreground. It’s usually spontaneous without tendencies to control the outcome too much.
The next layer creates shades and helps to bring up the shapes from the first layer to the foreground. It is kind of a submerging into the painting and rediscovery of edges and borders of the first layer, combining them, and also a sensitive harmonization of colors.
The last layer is the central motive, which is captured using ink in simple lines creating a realistic image of the object. And the objects displayed on my paintings vary. They depend on my current sensations and emotional moods. They can be recordings of places I visited, of my inner feelings, and of thoughts portrayed into symbols of animals, flowers, or other diverse entities and recently also figure drawings.
Katerina was born in 1981 in Brno, a beautiful medium-sized city in the Czech Republic.
She studied graphic design there, and then she worked for several years in a graphic studio. During her employment at the graphic studio, she completed an evening school of art led by Mr. Fridrich at Masaryk University. There she obtained essential figural and portrait drawing skills and learned the fundamentals of painting. She attended additional private lessons in oil painting and other courses as well.
She opened her own atelier in 2015, where, with great success, she taught techniques of drawing and painting.
Her first individual exhibition was in 2015 in Astoria Café, located in the AZ Tower, which is the tallest building in the Czech Republic. Since then, she has had a couple of additional individual and group shows.
In 2016 she successfully completed a 2-year study program Expressive Therapy with a specialization in Art Therapy at the Faculty of Education of the Masaryk University.
In 2018 she moved to San Diego, where she started to attend Mesa College, and in 2021 she completed her studies with an Associate of Arts degree.
