What is it that entices us to seek something we suspect exists yet is outside the parameters of our senses?
Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts presents an exhibition of Kathe Merilovich’s abstract paintings.
Kathe examines the fundamental forces that prevail throughout the universe and echo inside of us. Within a reality that can be minuscule in nature or of vast design, cyclic brush strokes turn into masses of spinning colour, randomness and energy. Geometrical constituents of paint, wire or plastic connect, transform, enter and exit.
Through sound byte titles available on mp3 players, this body of work sheds the perceptual baggage of intermediary language and typography. The primal energy within music extends our understanding and bridges the chasm between seemingly opposed ways of experiencing the world.
Kathe studied Fine Art at Humber College and at Brock and McMaster Universities. Currently living in Oshawa, she teaches drawing and painting at the Art Resource Centre.
