As Kate Browning Word’s exclusively abstract art emerges, multi-layers unfold a history with lines and shapes formed in her initial applications of gesso. Kate highlights texture and introduces an interplay with bold acrylic color, movement, and pattern.
Her passion for communicating spirituality drives her painting, collage media and printmaking to expose hidden layers that construct paintings for entertaining a viewer. She finds inspiration for balancing contrasts in modern architecture, nature and textiles and intentionally juxtaposes organic shapes with geometric lines and grids.
While some methods are calculated, Kate welcomes intuition, spontaneity and accidental discoveries as she explores varied aesthetic expressions.
Her work is collected across America and as far away as Kyoto, Japan.

I really love it! I see different things in it every time I look at it. I start by seeing the veins of a leaf and then it reminds me of the veins in the heart. I think about how we humans are very connected to the Earth and we don't even think about it, but I get deep in thought when I view it.
