photos and comment by Kate Carvellas

As I did not know what was in the collection, I was thrilled to see work by artists I’d seen in the PBS documentary series Art 21.

To see it “live” was incredibly powerful and inspiring. Seeing works by Basquiat, Mark Bradford, and Cy Twombly was especially meaningful to me.

There's a Hole in the Circus Tent by Kate Carvellas

There’s a Hole in the Circus Tent by Kate Carvellas

 

Kate Carvellas is a painter and an assemblage artist.

In her own words:

I am a self-taught artist who lives and creates in Pasadena, California.  In 2004, I found myself in need of an artistic outlet. I began creating two-dimensional thematic montages using imagery from various magazines and clip art sources. With further exploration and a new-found confidence, I began to pursue a different direction, creating, original, three dimensional collages.  In 2007 I began exploring the creative world of mixed media and assemblage and fell in love with both of these media. In 2014 I started exploring the unlimited potential of abstract painting.  Creating work purely from my own mind, without borrowing images or objects to bring the work to life, has been an exhilarating experience.
