Biography

Katy Moran’s paintings reflect a responsive working process: shifting or rotating the canvas while painting, reworking textures, and reconsidering the shapes and figures that emerge. With this approach to painting along with the inclusion of collage, often partially obscured, her work conveys a deliberate tension between materiality and subject. Moran creates a dynamic push and pull between the addition and the removal of paint; some works exhibit thick application of paint, while in others the painterly gesture is removed with rags dipped in varnish or even by sanding. Via the oscillation between representation and abstraction, composition and narrative, texture and space, Moran engages thought and sense simultaneously.
