After thirty years in San Francisco, Mill Valley and Sonoma, Kathleen Elsey relocated to Santa Barbara in 2003. Her paintings include back-road landscapes, beach scenes and paintings of interiors of interesting old rooms and sanctuaries. In the past three years, her works have exhibited in the Albuquerque Museum, Taos’ Millicent Rogers Museum, the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, Bakersfield Museum and the Salmagundi Gallery in New York City. She is represented by galleries in Chicago and Santa Barbara, California. Kathleen Elsey teaches “Brush with Life” painting workshops in California, New Mexico, New York and Ohio.

Artist Statement:
My interest in painting is with direct paint application in an expressive manner while using pure color combinations and meaty brushstrokes. The energetic emotion of moving paint around on the canvas, searching for shapes and colors, keeps me from seeing details. My colors are intensified and spontaneous in my hopes for a painting full of spirit. I search relentlessly for colors. If I don’t see the colors, I make up the colors. I try to hit the values in the range they should be, but with color, I think anything goes.

While I am searching for colors, I am thinking about composition. I like to experiment with planes and their relationships to each other. With big brushes I make swift rough strokes using blocks of color beside each other until an image emerges, especially when painting a large canvas in the studio with a multitude of figures. One artist reviewer recently described my paintings as mighty and memorable with a bold touch of post-Fauvist meets punk. In 1998, a San Francisco artist critic said my Fauvist paintings exhibited a dramatic brush with life. Since then, I have been teaching painting workshops known as Brush with Life across the country. I paint interior spaces, figures, beaches, still life, and landscapes in acrylic and oil on canvas. I chase light and shadows. I freeze colors and shapes and make those marks on my canvas. Recently my compositions have taken on a complexity forcing me to simplify as I sort through the shapes I see and try to organize them through paint. This has led my recent works into a more abstract interpretation.
