Kathryn Callaghan – Free Range
Kathryn Callaghan – Free Range – Limited Edition Print – Hand Signed.
Kathryn Callaghan lives and works in Northern Ireland and creates work inspired by the everyday glimpses of the beautiful world around her. Her work is created with a honey-like mix of ink and gel, which is poured freestyle onto the image surface. Additionally, free from pencil marks, she evokes a sense of energy, life and beauty for each subject. In addition to working with private collectors, she also works with art galleries, interior designers and other trade sectors. Additionally she caters for both residential and commercial projects.
Less is More
Undoubtedly, the expression ‘less is more’ is best demonstrated in her portrayal of wildlife where her ability to convey life and movement in her subjects using minimal paint is truly stunning.
Ink and Gel Pouring Application Techniques
There are as many methods as there are product combinations to try. Firstly, appreciate each paint colour as its own unique formula and pigments vary in their density and ability to move and spread.
The same is true for the many acrylic mediums produced. Now factor in the addition of water, Retarder, or diluted Acrylic Flow Release. Toss in the impact of the painting substrate and studio environment and suddenly, predictable pouring seems unattainable. The way to best describe the approach to pouring applications is the concept of setting the stage to allow the products to do what they want to do; in other words, controlled chaos. And if you don’t take good studio notes to identify how each painting is created then you’ll never be able to reproduce a great effect when they happen.
