Artist: Kate McCavitt
More to share about this talented artist: Kate McCavitt is an Asian informed Mixed Media Abstract Painter. In her earlier work, East met West in the fusion of contemporary experimental water media and ancient Asian brush work influences. Kate still creates her original art “Between Two Worlds”. She moves between abstraction and realism, regional place-influenced works and flights of fancy sourced strictly from her “what if?” curiosity. Although Yin & Yang are not technically considered one of the key principles of art, she knows they include each and every one. Trained as a Sumie artist, often called “Chinese Brush”, and self-taught in other mixed media genres, Kate lavishes all of her color-rich, surface-detailed, touchably-textured paintings with the subtleties of Asian tradition and a discipline of “no shortcuts”. Rich wash layers of transparent fluid acrylics build color and the isolation coats of gloss varnishes capture between them both the random events of experimental techniques, and iconic symbols from Zen circles and representational foil spheres hand embossed by the artist, to majestic mountains, deep reflective lakes and gold-leafed aspen and ancient Druidic oak trees. Kate McCavitt, a native of New York, lives next to a wildlife conservation corridor in Oceanside, California with the love of her life, grandchildren nearby, a resident hummingbird family, and bunnies, egrets, coyotes, bats, crows and hawks. Her studio is in her home and her home is her Catharsis Gallery for showing her work in a beautiful setting. Her work is in private and corporate collections around the world. She finds joy in the Artist’s Way, in writing and creating art journals, in being a grandmother, in long walks, scuba diving, teaching art and inspiring others. She tries to live by Martha Graham’s advice, “You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.” (Bio via body of work.us) #katemccavittart #art #artist #fineart #asianinfluence #instagood #beautiful #interiordesign #designer #mixedmedia #abstract #realism #metallicgessos #artoftheday #picoftheday #instagood
