Abstract Figures : Intertwined 2020
From a series of original works painted by Kate Winskill during Coronavirus Lockdown. “Abstract Figures “ intertwined and crowded together, illustrate a yearning for human contact in a time of isolation.
The series incorporates the subtle colours of natural landscapes, worked in thin watercolour as abstract backgrounds . These are then overlaid with thin, highly viscose oil and sometimes enamel paints , dripped and ‘drawn’ from above the paper. The oil paints dry in raised lines , often with a textured surface skin, to give an aged patina reminiscent of cave paintings .
