Kathleen Hope’s work is influenced by her diverse background in Interior Design and Color Psychology. Hope’s art fuses all that intrigues and inspires her. Kathleen Hope's mixed and multi-media paintings assert themselves with a commanding physical presence. Her mostly non-objective pieces have a confident physicality to them that is a result of Hope's expertise with color, and her muscular blend of cement, plaster, pigment and collage in varying combinations. Her mark making, done with various paint and drawing tools, is unselfconscious in an automatic writing kind of way. The combination of these strengths makes for a very handsome and unusual body of work, which is uncommon, and so is the ground she works on.
