Karin Waskiewicz works with acrylic paint applied in thick layers to create a collection of hidden colours.
After applying the layers are Karin makes marks in the paint. Every mark is a reaction to the shape, placement, and color of the previous marks made.
The painting emerges from dry paint as she carves away, excavating the thick surface, intuitively revealing and investigating the depth of the paint, creating feather-like patterns.
Karin’s paintings “reflect formations found in the natural world and the shapes created are both organic and formulated. The repetition of marks connects visually and gives the paintings a vibrational quality and mimic movement.”
If you are lucky enough to live in New York, stop reading this stupid blog and go see one of Karin’s work in the flesh at Schroeder Romero & Shredder.
