Touch Points II
Watercolors by Katherine Blakeslee
Katherine Blakeslee is a watercolorist whose new work is a continuing exploration of nature and places real and imaginary, familiar and strange, at home and abroad. She is fascinated by the connections between continents and peoples represented by the sea and the sky we share.
This show’s works include images from across the world where serenity and turbulence sometimes co-exist. To Blakeslee watercolor embodies the interplay of factors which make up our complex world. It can be both translucent and opaque, it can move slowly or quickly, and it can transcend boundaries and even the imagination of the artist. Like our world, watercolor is never within the individual artist’s complete control, sometimes resulting in wonderful co-creation.
Katherine Blakeslee has been interested in art and creative pursuits all her life. Self-taught as a watercolorist, she began to explore painting in 2003, inspired, in part, by a painting she did as a child that was saved by her father.
