SALT WATER: New Works by Katharine Burns

SALT WATER: New Works by Katharine Burns

My second solo show, Salt Water, is opening next week from May 26 - June 7, 2017, at Argyle Fine Art.  I'm really excited to share what I have been working so hard on for the past six months.  Here are a few words I have to say about the new body of work:

In my new work, my focus has shifted away from shorelines and skies and towards the water itself.  The ocean can be very powerful at one moment yet quietly calming at another.  I have been exploring the different ways water can convey a sense of atmosphere on its own through the use of light, reflections and colour.  While painting this body of work I felt immersed in the subject matter and I want that feeling of immersion in the ocean to come through to the viewer.

The entire show will be available to view online at argylefineart.com after May 26.
