Spontaneity 3 suggests a twisted theory of everything, where a fragmented space exists in various states of activity. The work combines the format of world maps and hyperbolic geometry to achieve complexity. Disparate layers of media expose paint washes, graphite drawing, and soft brushwork. Each painting integrates an underlying axis of symmetry while subsequent layers of contrasting shapes and color negate the initial simplification. This energetic work seeks the unification of structure and nature.

Spontaneous Symmetry

Kate Colin Wood’s studio practice consists of 2D work that interprets expansive hypothetical spaces, inspired by mathematical theories, physical infrastructure, and nature. Within her work, she combines oppositional elementals. A single work may reference painterly abstraction, geometric hard-edge abstraction, still life drawing, 3D rendering, Photoshop gradients, or highways. Her paintings are rooted in process, both unpredictable and systematic, and the different techniques side by side create ambiguous space. Within current work, built up oil paint exists alongside areas of raw stained canvas or graphite drawing. This method allows the viewer to see the various stages of the drawing and painting while creating dynamic interplay of figure and ground.

Kate Colin Wood earned her MFA from University of Dallas and obtained her BFA from University of North Texas. She is currently teaching full-time at St. Mark’s School of Texas. From 2014-2016, she was a 500X Gallery member. Kate Colin Wood was a 2012 recipient of the Kimbrough Fund awarded by the Dallas Museum of Art.
