Katy Bishop is a contemporary abstract painter based in the California. Her work is characterized by bold, expressive and vibrant use of color. Many of her paintings offer a unique interpretation of the natural world through abstraction, with shapes and patterns that evoke the movement and energy of the natural world.
In addition, Katy Bishop is known for her use of alcohol ink in reverse painting on plexiglass and glass. This involves painting on the back of a clear surface, which allows the viewer to see the image in reverse.
Whether painting on paper or on glass in reverse, Katy produces a range of vivid, translucent colors and creates unique, organic patterns.
These techniques add to the distinctiveness of Bishop's artwork, creating a visual experience that is both intricate and harmonious. Her artworks demonstrate her willingness to experiment with different materials and techniques and highlight her ability to create striking and engaging pieces.
She is represented in Los Angeles by TAG Gallery, and by MEGA Gallery in Rome, Italy and is a member of the Los Angeles Art Association, California Art League, and the International Association of Artists - USA. Her art has been exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and is held in private collections across the country.
I create my artwork to communicate feelings and ideas that cannot easily be expressed well in words. Dreams, emotions, and memories are often considered abstract and lacking in comprehension. Abstract painting gives me the opportunity to create an emotional and physical artwork that someone else can repeatedly enjoy
As I explore the use of light and shade through color and movement, I recognize that the control we all want to exert in our lives is often paired with uncontrollable growth and change.
Alcohol inks can be deep or transparent, they can be controlled and totally uncontrolled. Perhaps an apt description of my artwork...deep and transparent, controlled and uncontrolled.
