Catherine Woskow's abstract paintings exhibit a bold rawness that the artist draws from her own inner world, with her thoughts and emotions on view as a visceral expression in each of her works. With a mix of thick acrylic, fluid glazes, and thin lines of graphite layered over the top of wooden panels, Woskow's "Head Series" molds both layers of paint and thought to express the randomness and disorder of the mind.
Within this series, Woskow strives to express the interplay between the inner dialogue of the mind and the intuitive guidance of the body, and the complex struggle amid the two. Her works display certainty of line, and her daring linear elements sweep and dance across the across each panel, generating a refined chaos.
Woskow's works have been exhibited and collected throughout the United States, including the Grace Hudson Museum, Ukiah, CA, and galleries and private collections throughout Oregon, California, Japan, Germany, Australia, Thailand, Spain, France, and Great Britain. Woskow has also received numerous awards for her works, including the LB Research and Education Foundation Grant, the Rotary International Foundation Grant, and the George Haseltine Art Prize from the Bradford Liberal Arts College. Woskow has studied at the Bradford Liberal Arts College in Massachusetts, Sonoma State University in California, and at the Koininkikje Akademie koor Kunst en Vormgeving in the Netherlands. Woskow resides and works in Northern California.
