Coastal Impressions: Katharine Burns
This new body of work celebrates the beauty and variation in the familiar yet ever wondrous subject of water. Specifically, the Ocean, in its boundless mass and dormant strength. Intentionally differing in their temperament and spirit, each painting captures specific encounters with the coastline that left lasting impressions on me: wading along the subaqueous dunes, watching the sun fall slowly beneath the ocean’s horizon, or taking in ferocious and turbulent waves from a safe distance. Moments like these evoke feelings of awe, comfort and relief. These paintings intend to recreate those impressions on canvas.
