COLORJOY - Opening Night For Katie Southworth
Please join us for an opening night to welcome new works by Katie Southworth.
Katie Southworth is an internationally recognized artist and art educator currently based in Boston, MA. Originally from Darien Connecticut, she graduated from Colby College in Waterville Maine with Bachelors degrees in Studio Art and Psychology.
My work harnesses the power of color and light to promote mindfulness, joy, and mental well-being. I am inspired by emotions, memory, and nature: especially water. Sometimes, I paint while directly observing specific light conditions, photography, or objects. Other times, I create pieces intuitively in response to my mood, or the developing piece itself. I consider myself a colorist in constant study of color theory and relativity. Thus, in every piece, each layer of color is always governed by the previous layers. I do this until my eyes can dance freely across the entire piece. Once that happens, a color story, memory, or mood can emerge.
