katherine ace paintings

these beautiful, dynamic mixed media paintings from portland-based artist katherine ace are composed primarily of alkyd and oil. katherine says she enjoys complex storytelling and approaches each piece in an abstract way, first embedding the canvas itself with assorted ephemera like feathers or little shreds of paper before creating the actual piece. it is during this process that multitudes of metaphorical layers become exposed, the story begins and the palpable energy that is carried within all her work becomes evident.
