Featured Artist - Katie Ward

Glasgow Print Studio, Ground Floor Gallery
Exhibition Runs: 3rd July - 2nd August 2015

You and your guest are invited to attend a preview of this exhibition on:

Thursday 2nd July, 6-8pm, 6-8pm (Trongate 103 1st Thursday)

Exploring painting's complex and seductive language, Katie creates pictures laced with both abstract and figurative tensions to celebrate the diversity of gestural expression. Accordingly, her pieces evolve through a harmony of intuition and playful experimentation.

She draws inspiration from a visual interpretation of personal experience; often describing a sense of place, a specific atmospheric tone, or condition. She believes artists can use their creative voice to communicate feelings and experiences as a narrative, in which to affect others, and this is the primary intention that drives her current artistic practice.
