Toronto based artist Nicole Katsuras paints vibrant, dynamic compositions that sit thickly on the surface of each canvas.
Spirals, blobs, and swirls are built up into vibrating, frantically energetic abstractions that suggest an island floating in a rough sea or a city nestled into an unforgiving hillside. Each work is filled with an abundance of marks and brushstrokes, keeping our eye moving from detail to detail. Katsuras saturates her practice with a stunning colour palette of banana yellow, neon oranges, and cobalt blues, cheerful choices that increase the contrast in her unique paint application.
Nicole Katsuras' practice is an exploration of the very nature of painting itself, the many ways in which you can apply paint to a canvas. We love how far she can push the materiality of each work!
