Katy Kuhn’s art is about balancing spontaneity and energy with discipline and intention. She believes that making art is a process that one has to have an ultimate faith that, with enough passion and attention, something worthy will be born. For Katy as an artist, there is nothing more challenging or beautiful than a blank canvas: anything is possible, and yet nothing is certain. Katy creates abstract landscapes, people, and objects so that her paintings feel like something without actually being that something. She aims for a wider interpretation that allows for constant renewal in the viewer’s mind.

Kuhn is a fourth generation Californian and has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area most of her life. She aspires to make art that is aesthetically interesting, yet edgy and ambiguous. She is inspired to express the beauty in the chaos: shorelines in nature and industrial wastelands; the human figure and conflicting emotions. The artist graduated from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor of Fine Art and has participated in many solo and group shows. She is a member of the ICB Artists Association, Marin Arts Council as well as the O’Hanlon Center for the Arts and the Mill Valley Art Commission.

It is paint, after all... and the fact that its application onto a single surface can reach the deepest part of our psyches is nothing short of a miracle.
