Kathryn Glover's Profile

About

I was classically trained in figure drawing at California College of the Arts, receiving a BFA with Honors. My passion from drawing stems from a lifelong habit of being the constant observer; the person no one notices in the corner with a sketch book and pencil. The pencil dragging across a piece of paper is a familiar sound to me; of my pursuit of recording over perceptive senses at work and play. My sketchbooks serve as a visual journal and diary of narratives; people and places recorded through the use of shapes, colors, atmosphere, attitudes and tensions of a given moment, perhaps at a small concert or in a crowded airport.

Domesticity has always been the foundation of my daily life, growing up in the South in a rather large family. My personal experiences, from both memories and sketchbooks, have left me with a vast reserve of stories. Vintage artifacts are the vessels with which I, as a…

I was classically trained in figure drawing at California College of the Arts, receiving a BFA with Honors. My passion from drawing stems from a lifelong habit of being the constant observer; the person no one notices in the corner with a sketch book and pencil.

Domesticity has always been the foundation of my daily life, growing up in the South in a rather large family. My personal experiences, from both memories and sketchbooks, have left me with a vast reserve of stories. Vintage artifacts are the vessels with which I, as a painter, may use as an aide throughout my investigations and studies of the past. Additional ideas for new pieces wait in my sketchbooks to further stimulate the beginning process of a work. My "stuff" is personal and my color choices on my palette have a special meaning with designated purposes. Color is a science in which controlled and knowledgeable use is tantamount to finding true expression of my many senses at work. The viscosity of oils and the forgiving quality of gouache are my preferred mediums, often using gesso-coated paper, vellum or wood panels in my further investigation of the most emotive, painterly strokes and surfaces.

Working quite large used to be my preferred strategy in raising my voice in order to convey my message. The procedure in which I paint today is spent with more time for creative and decisive conclusions to be resolved in each piece. My goal is to be in a constant state of evolution through process and practice. It's all about the practice.
