Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Artwork will be listed for sale from Oct 28 2019.

"Escape to Palm Springs" is inspired by the pastel loving desert paradise of Palm Springs, California. The bright and colourful composition arouses instant feelings of warmth and a yearning for those long summer days relaxing poolside, soaking up the sun.

The pink wall is highly textured with the thick application of an impasto acrylic and resin sand mix, offering that extra tactile element that brings the painting to life. The textural wall contrasts beautifully against the smooth concrete path below and distant mountains above. ETPS features my signature textural water which reflects the cacti and pink wall, while contrasting against the smooth surface of the pool sun mats.

Fascinated by texture and colour, Kate is a self-taught Australian artist working across Resin and Acrylic mediums to produce offerings of painterly and abstract escapism. Kate’s vibrant acrylic works explore the notion of daydreams, with intent to transport minds seeking escape from the monotony of everyday life. Kate’s technique presents a textural dance between controlled intentional brush strokes and the free form manipulation of a palette knife.
