About Katie Jurkiewicz
There are no upcoming events
All my work begins with sketches of observed landscape. Life is stranger then fiction - I find that I need to keep my work grounded in the quirkiness of reality to keep it from becoming predictable. I then take my drawings from the field, usually black ink on paper, and translate them back in the studio in technicolor. I find this step is key- allowing me to interpret the spirit of the scene rather than dutifully reproducing it.
While I have created landscapes of all types in the past, currently I am most interested in interpreting the natural world and works about renewable energy & environmental causes.
