Katherine Bello is a contemporary abstract painter. Using playful mark-making and lush colour, she constructs her compositions through layers of thick paint and thin glazes.
Through an intuitive process, she builds the paintings over time – creating form, texture, light and space on two dimensional surfaces. Her work is deliberately open-ended, leaving interpretation from the viewer through the lens of their own life experience.
Katherine Bello’s goal as an artist is to capture a sense of place, a moment of time, or a feeling – to evoke a sense of wonder. Bello loves paint and paint brushes; bold, gestural mark-making and the interplay of color. She is influenced by light and landscape, poetry, history and science. Formerly educated in Chemical Engineering and Interior Design, Bello is drawn to the process of creating Something out of Nothing.
For Bello, art is a point of view, not only of the artist who creates the work, but also of the viewer who examines, interprets and lives with the art. As an Abstract painter, Bello strives to push formal boundaries – Always questioning, always curious, forever exploring. Spontaneity, intuition, and memory guide Bello as she continually embarks on re-contextualizing personal nostalgia through her abstract paintings.
Bello received her BS in Chemical Engineering from Kansas University in 1988. Bello’s desire to paint came to fruition later in her career. Subsequently, Bello studied Fine Art and Design at JCCC from 2006-2015. During this time, she developed her recognizable abstract style and attention to colorways. Bello later went onto study Fine Art at KCAI from 2014-2018 through their renowned continuing education program.
