Katharine Harvey

"Katharine Harvey’s paintings explore the mobile and dimensional qualities of light. Known for her paintings of water, storefront displays and reflections, Harvey’s latest works also depict electricity as a visual presence. Building images amidst thick layers of clear acrylic paint, she echoes the distortive, fluid properties of water and glass. These paintings achieve a prismatic beauty through the illusion of depth and layers of vibrant colours. Like live wires, these playful optical effects channel the visual energy of elemental forces and their abstract rhythm." - Nicholas Metiver Gallery. See more;
