The Art of Kathryn Gastelum is to experience a "visual jazz" within her Abstract paintings.
An improvisation in paint, the canvas becomes a background for rhythmic tones of color and marks in oil and cold wax medium.
My inspiration from jazz music, desert sunsets, travel, and simply my soul intention, define this meditation of moving color and composition. It is then for each viewer to connect and define the higher meaning within each abstraction.
In the Realism portfolio, my paintings are defined by solitude & reflection.
Each painting captures a scene influenced by global destinations of beauty such as France and Africa, amazing deserts, Sonoran skies, palomas and personal objets d'art.
