In her latest body of work, Slipping (Into Something), East Bay abstract painter Kathleen King experiments with ideas of fluidity and containment. Developments to the artist’s oeuvre include combining the punch of metallic and spray paint with the lush dimensionality of oils, and refining a process of taping off portions of the paintings and aggregating marks in an improvised manner. Form is created through accident, complex alternation, and asymmetrical patterning. Structure is built and rebuilt in successive layers, coming to rest on the painting’s fractured surface. A color palette pushed to excess connects with the juxtaposition of hard edge and rhythmic brushstroke. Relying on process, personal experience and a gritty alchemy, King produces emotionally resonant paintings that continue to explore the possibilities and promises of abstraction in a contemporary milieu of multiplicity and risk.
