Artist Statement
Katherine Borkowski-Byrne Artist Statement Painting for me is a purely visual language. It speaks first to the eyes. Spontaneous and intuitive brushwork and other mark making, and the use of accidents to express pure experience is my intent, an experience that goes beyond words but hopefully communicates something truthful or recognizable to others. Having no preconceived ideas, it is the process of making a painting that interests me most and discovering something original that feels alive to the senses. Though I rarely finish one piece in one session, each time I work on a painting I make it fresh letting the painting guide me and take on a life of its own without worrying about destroying what was created earlier. Working in layers, I build up the surface by taking away and adding until I step back and know that, though it may look slightly crude and unfinished, it makes a statement.
