Kathryn Macnaughton’s abstract paintings are compositional and textural experiments in acrylic paint. They are also canvases of contradiction: at once contemporary and timeless, flat and sculptural, compiled and uniform, static and unmistakably alive.
These works are playful reminders that the abstract need not be unfamiliar. Inspired by collage, cut-outs, vintage palettes, and digital illustration, Macnaughton’s paintings respond—and inform—the many and converging concerns of the moment: permanence, fragments, history and its ephemera.
A graduate of OCAD, Macnaughton has exhibited in both Canada and abroad since 2010. Recent collaborations include Kit and Ace, Collective Arts Brewery, and The Gardiner Museum, Toronto.
