Katrina Magowan is a promising young artist having earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA.
With bold color and energetic brushwork Magowan creates painted worlds which are part pattern and part map making, an exploration of the inexplicable. Magowan seeks to portray a place that lies between the real and unreal which invites viewers to discover new and unusual patterns in something they thought was familiar.
These works can be thought of as thought maps. A visual representation of my choices and decisions. Hopefully these too can function as meditative spaces for the viewer as well. If I can engage my viewer to become lost within my own thought patterns I will have successfully created a conversation that doesn’t require words or speaking.
