Katarina Chomova is a fine art painter from the Czech Republic, currently living in Aberdeen. She graduated from Gray's School of Art, in 2012.
Katarina Chomova's paintings sit between reality and dream-like imagery. She has been interested in spaces around her, places visited and also the idea of abandonment and how it affects the space.
"Deconstruction and reconstruction of forms and shapes is an important part of my art practice. While working on a painting I carefully analyse the space and negative spaces incorporated in the image. I often feel the need to change the space. By adding quiet or busy elements, careful consideration of colours, contrasts and use of line, the mood and the perception of the spaces change. I can become obsessive with the techniques that I am using. Some of the spaces change as the painting progresses and this signifies the element of being alive.
For me the whole matter of painting becomes about the process, balance and resolution."
