Catherine Kehoe

Catherine Kehoe Begonia oil on board 8"x8" 2008


Catharine Kehoe says "my work is about the way I look and the way I see". This simple subject of a begonia plant is painted with a highly charged patience. There is a flattening effect in the way she emphasizes color, line and shape over atmospheric space, which combined with the strength of the overall pattern of negative and positive space  make her work seem thoroughly modern.



In honor of Lisa Daria Kennedy's beautiful flower paintings, we'll spend the month of August considering paintings, drawings and photographs of flowers. If you have an image of a painting, drawing or photograph of a flower that you admire (someone else's work) and a few thoughts you'd like to share, please email me and I'll set up a post for you.
