WORK WITH

Catie Radney

Michaela Hoppe
   

Acrylic | Mixed Media

The works of Catie Radney are the products of intense and intimate conversations spoken in the language of form, space, color and gesture. An exuberant and impassioned artist, Catie is consumed with the curiosity of the ever-changingperspectives within her mind. Her use of tonally  consonant and contrasting color combined with vigorous brushwork, imbues Catie’s paintings with a complex emotional presence.

While her paintings often feature forms or silhouettes, they are intimatelyabout the act, the process of painting and perhaps how that reflects the process of living as they are one in the same. Both being magical, spiritual, and painful as they bring joy, madness, and clarity; Radney’s process replicates the constant struggle forbalance in all of life.  Her work becomes a world she can get lost in and could easily stay in forever. She carefully tiptoes along the lines of reality and illusion as she creates these worlds within her work. She has a voracious appetite for image making which is rarely satisfied as it could go on forever. When painting she uses the canvas as an opportunity to confess her personal thoughts, experiences, and diatribe about what she cannot reconcile from the world outside of the studio. Approaching a solution involves allowing the figurative forms in the composition to be birthed into existence. The implied figures give structure to the raw nature of the layers and layers of underpainting. The figures play the role of masking or distracting from what is too literal or too honest for the artist yet to reveal. The donning of recognizable form in paint mirrors every human’s experience of wearing an acceptable persona to navigate their daily life.
