“Katy Moran’s gestural and highly evocative paintings may appear to be abstract, the artist herself is invariably concerned with the figurative”
For Moran, ideas arise out of the process of painting. She works with the paint, consciously and subconsciously preserving and rejecting marks until she sees they are alive with the energy and power that she considers right. To lose attachment to any figurative referent that may have appeared too soon in the process, she will often turn a canvas and work on it from different perspectives, painting until every part of it works.
Released on the occasion of Katy Moran’s solo exhibition at Parasol unit, London, 15 January – 8 March 2015, the publication includes full-page colour reproductions of the works in the exhibition. It is also accompanied by an interview between the artist and Dr. Ziba Ardalan, director and curator of Parasol unit, London as well as an essay by Oliver Basciano. The hand-numbered publication has a limited run of 500 copies.
