Katherine Reekie – Artist

Construction at the centre of the circle

Originally from London I’m now based in Hastings, East Sussex, an environment rich in contrasts and eccentricities and the inspiration for much of my work. My imagery, which is often described as accessible but slightly unnerving, is the product of an excellent grounding in traditional figurative art practise, and an interest in the strange and surreal. My current work explores the surrealist nature of painting itself. strange structures pinned and pulled, interact with organic matter to create intriguing and seductive compositions. Through the controlled use of oil paint I have the ability to create the illusion of believable form and space. Like props on a stage I arrange my subject matter to evoke a sense of order and purpose. However on closer inspection the viewer might question the logic of these often unfamiliar forms. My intention is not to depict reality but to nudge people to question and consider it.

Original and reproduction artworks are for sale, please contact Katherine if you are interested in aquiring a piece.
