Kate_Carvellas_paintingsWhen Kate Carvellas began creating artwork seven years ago it was made entirely of borrowed images and objects. Through the years, she slowly began leaving her own marks on the work. Starting out with light pencil markings to more visible lines and shapes. As her confidence grew, she was utilizing borrowed images less and less and paint more and more. While she is is still deeply enjoying creating assemblages out of found objects, she have now begun creating abstract paintings made of paint and pure intuitive imagination. These painting, at first, sprang straight from her subconscious. Lately, however, she has also been using her own photographs as the springboard for her abstract paintings. Abstracting reality. (Official text)

“My work is an essential and intensely personal part of my life. It explores and expresses the inner workings of my mind and heart in a way that words cannot express. It is my hope that when people see my work, it will somehow resonate with them on some level, be it intellectual, emotional or spiritual”.

Kate Carvellas’s newest paintings “In the Abstract” may be viewed at EklectoMania Gallery during the September NELA Art Gallery Night on September 12.

Second Saturday Gallery Night is a self-guided tour of the galleries, non-profits and artist run project spaces located in Northeast Los Angeles (NELA), i.e., Highland Park and even Eagle Rock. 

NELA’s 2nd Saturday is a fun evening to be out—looking, browsing, observing, admiring, acquiring—as people walk the blocks between galleries, bars, restaurants, and shops—most shops and galleries open until 10 p.m.
