Kathryn Goodnite is an accomplished artist, designer and former gallery owner in Austin TX. The beauty and depth of her paintings are only matched by the range and volume of her extensive body of work. Her sheer, unadulterated sensibility seeps through every brush stroke.
“Expressionism by oneself or others creates emotion and ensures passion, which is how I feel about life and art. Art can be a conversation or a dance. Loneliness is rarely present as a painter in my mind,” the artist adds.
Goodnite’s studies began in the Hawaiian Islands in the early eighties, continuing in Bordeaux, France. Some years later, she made her way to Houston, TX, a refreshing change of pace and scenery to a vibrant urban American metropolis. “The time I spent in Houston changed my perspective and style, reshaping how I visualize and approach an abstract expression of nature.” Kathryn is unambiguously attracted to nature, as is evidenced in most of her paintings. “My love of water is present in much of my work.”
The artist spent 2015 through 2017 traveling across Asia with enormous canvases, multiple mediums and an urgency to discover. “There was much joy, but also much devastation along the way. This sharp contrast I believe surfaced in my recent abstracts.” Goodnite is proud to debut new work in 2018.
