Kathleen Mahoney Paintings
My work is primarily conceptual with elements of abstraction and minimalism incorporated into it. I use these elements to destroy the traditional definitions of abstraction and minimalism by taking my abstract paintings, cutting them up and reassembling them in a new way. I achieve the result by utilizing metal mesh and canvas, which I fuse into one surface. My goal is to fuse and juxtapose mesh and weaving with the intention of illustrating the sharp contrast of opposites as witness in the masculine and feminine traits present in the human condition. My finished paintings are feminine, focused on colour, stroke, and texture as well as masculine, utilizing squares of metal mesh, found objects, and weaving of bands of cloth into a minimalist grid. This combination and juxtaposition of expressionism banded by minimal space is an experimentation that turns abstract work into something more intellectual without losing the initial feelings. This new restructuring and combining of masculine and feminine is an ongoing process. It is a journey towards a new way of seeing.
