Kat Green is a painter, originally from South Carolina, now living and working every day in her sunny studio in the high-desert of Joshua Tree, California.
Kat’s work is expressionist in nature and focuses on the idea of impermanence relative to life and relationships. Kat has evolved her daily practice in relation to traditional Japanese aesthetics derived from Buddhist teachings, Wabi-sabi, which is an aesthetic world view centered on the acceptance of impermanence, imperfection and incompleteness. There is no literal narrative to Kat’s work, but rather the paintings are about flux: a natural evolution that results from the passage of time and the ever-changing nature of life. Wabi-sabi approach is central to her life and work.
Kat is drawn to the seemingly imperfect, unearthing and embracing subtle details that beckon the viewer to explore the work more closely.
