KATHLEEN DOYLE COOK
Kathleen’s intuitive images are often described as “sensory landscapes.” They are created from the act of painting. The results are abstract expressionistic images which combine the spontaneous energy of the action painters with the structure of color field artists. She works primarily in acrylic and mixed media with layers of brushwork creating rich surfaces and textures. It is these rich surfaces that invite an exploration of the levels of awareness found in the spaces between a “known image” and its layers of possibilities. The paintings cannot dictate the viewer’s response because they have evolved in the abstract without preconception. In 2009 Kathleen moved from the Boston area where she exhibited extensively. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
