Raw Canvas Series Blue by Kathleen Rhee.
With a strikingly beautiful soft matt textured finish this dramatic abstract series is painted on raw unprimed canvas I have hand stretched myself. Raw canvas readily absorbs paint giving a very deep solid colour effect with delicate details of 5 layers showing through. Colours I have used in this work are pale grey, midnight blue, ice blue, winter blue and white.Hand stretched canvas on a custom made stretcher frame
This painting has natural drip edges, with the Artist signature on rear of work.
About the Artist
Kathleen Rhee has always loved the creativity of art. In her own words “art chose me” and from the age of 15 she knew she wanted to be an artist.
Her father was an early teacher – a talented illustrator and traditional sign writer who did everything by hand. Kathleen later studied at the prestigious Parsons School of Design in New York and worked in the design industry.
Returning to Canberra 15 years ago she made the decision to commit to her own art.
There has been an evolution of her art over those years. Her art is an expression of her love for colour and its nuances especially as it is reflected in nature.
