About

“Impulsive Impressions, an exploration where colour, movement, and form collide. Each painting is a journey into spontaneity, blending organic shapes into rhythmic patterns while embracing gesturalism and improvisation.

The process is a delicate balance, requiring unwavering trust in intuition and a willingness to embrace failure. With each pour of paint, I navigate a terrain of uncertainty, knowing precisely when to halt or push the boundaries further, teetering on the edge of no return. I am constantly acting and thinking, with no predefined image in mind, only open-ended possibilities.

The scale of the canvas mirrors the embrace of the body, yet animates it with an intensity that demands physical interaction. Painting allows me to turn thoughts into action, expressing emotions in a direct and powerful way. Each piece is a reflection of my unique perspective, a blend of chaos and calm, capturing the essence of existence.”

- Kathryn Macnaughton, 2024
