“The painting is built on repetition of a limited number of mark making movements and completed in high key colour. The work explores my search into alternative forms of knowledge via the painting medium. I use traditional painting materials to stay within the painting language but I do not approach them as ‘known’ to me through my previous experiences or learnt techniques. I attempt to re-establish qualities of these materials as they are, on their own terms, outside of my expectations. I wait for propositions from my materials and I respond. The image appears but I delay its ‘interpretation’ in order to give a chance to newer forms to emerge that are not immediately known or familiar.” ~ Katya Petetskaya, 2021
