K. Q. PARKS
Kathy Parks creates abstract imagery saturated with color, 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. The ever-present spheres in her current work is inspired from the following Blasé Pasqual quote.
“Nature is an infinite sphere, whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.”
As a native of Arizona, she has developed a deep love and respect for the southwestern desert environment. Kathy is a self-taught artist who had the good fortune to have a mother that did not believe in store bought toys, but instead placed a box of “goodies” in front of her and said… “make your own”. Kathy is a graduate of the University of Arizona and her work can be seen in public and private venues throughout the United States and Canada. Her work is signed with a “Rocking Q”, the brand her family used on their ranch in Southern Arizona.
