Katherine Lubar Paintings
Katherine Lubar grew up in the United States and has been living in London since 1994. Her work is influenced by living in both countries and especially reflects the strong light in Dallas, where she spent most of her childhood. Having a degree in music as well as in art, her paintings often reflect aspects of music, although the main subject of her work is light and its description of space. Other important elements include a fascination with perspective and the double-sided coin of flatness and depth as well as investigating relationships between colours, using colour to signify our emotional response to light.

Artist's Statement:
My main interest is in light and the emotional, psychological and visual effects of its patterns on man-made structures such as buildings and interiors. I am also interested in the reverse of this: the shadow - which is the negative space of light. Light and shadow create a kind of geometry that I abstract to a certain extent, so as to focus on form rather than content. In addition, I like to play with elements of perspective, hovering between ideas of flatness and depth on the picture plane. Colour is another vital element to my work: each painting is a study in colour – investigating new colour combinations and the way different colours change each other depending on the colour(s) they are near. I also use colour to express light – sometimes using the brightness hierarchy of colours to delineate what would, in black and white, be light and shade, but also often playing with nontraditional uses of colour (for example, using cool colours to express light or using warm colours that 'come forward' for background spaces so as to compress the picture plane).
