Karen Chesterman
My painting is all about process. It’s about being in the studio doing the work of layering form, color, texture, and mark making into a cohesive whole. I’m inspired by all the possibilities inherent in the mediums I use. It’s the journey of search and experiment that intrigues me. My practice of yoga and meditation helps me focus and let go of what I think the work should look like and rather watch as the paintings take on a life of their own. It's basic really ... to paint is to believe in my instincts. Painting transcends the intellectual, is driven by the emotional, and is ultimately a reflection of the spirit. My paintings evolve over time and the process is one of "building" layer over layer.
