January 2019 – Community Gallery

Filigree Acrylic Paintings by Catherine Carter

 

 

Exhibition: January 4th – 31st, 2019

 Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10am‐5pm 

 

Artist Statement: 

The sinuous lines in my “Filigree” paintings suggest multiple associations: lace, graffiti, textile weaves, calligraphic marks, gestural drawing, natural contours such as branches or vines. None of these interpretations is definitive, conjuring a sense of open possibility that contributes to the series’ compelling but elusive nature.

To create them, I draw across the canvas in looping strips of fluid acrylic paint, extruded from squeeze bottles. Next, I lay a sheet of paper over the wet marks and roll over it with a brayer, so that the lines become softer and wider. Finally, I define edges and solidify the design with precise applications of thicker paint. It is a multi-layered and ultimately satisfying process.

– Catherine Carter
