ABOUT KATHY: Kathy Q. Parks creates abstract imagery saturated with color, layered with multiple marks, tangled with movement and intricately textured. Her work, upon closer inspection, reveals layers to be comprised of organic texture and abstracted natural forms. They convey a sense of flora and fauna,without the details of conventional painting techniques. A self-taught artist, her work can be seen in public and private venues throughout the United States and Canada. She signs her work with a Rocking Q, the brand used at one time on her family ranch. The ever-present sphere shapes in Kathy's current work is inspired from the following quote from 16th a century mathematician .
"Nature is an infinite sphere whose center is everywhere and whose
circumference is nowhere." - Blase Pascal
I am intrigued by the feeling one gets when connecting with the world outside; when you open eyes and ears, close down a busy brain and shove out out the noise of hectic lifestyles. It is such a healing experience. I want to convey the belief that we are intricately and infinitely laced with mother nature. My hope is that my art celebrates that relationship by visually wrapping you in her delightful arms by creating a sense of joy and a chance to catch your breath.
