Kate Andrews' sensitive images shift between concrete and ephemeral. Overlapping, merging and seemingly abraded colour fields meet sharp accentuating markings; dividing frames encounter fragmented structures. In addition to reminiscences of architecture and references to digital imagery, her nuanced paintings and drawings primarily convey moods and exceptional colour impressions. Again and again, allusive forms emerge, but without acquiring a fixed meaning. The painting »hoverbeam«, for example, could be derived from an architectural situation, perhaps from a window. But it remains a fleeting, unredeeming suggestion. The painting can be interpreted as an abstract pictorial space or as a gaze directed upward. This open and sometimes temporary character is an essential aspect of many works by the young Canadian artist.Read More
