Kathy Ferguson is a mixed media artist who paints colorful, imaginative abstract landscapes. Her work is in many collections including the Plaza Hotel, the Four Season Hotel, and the Belmond Grand Hotel Europe.
My paintings are conceived in the magical interlude between sleep and awakening, when fantasy blends with reality. It is here that my imagination is fueled and I dream the otherwise unimaginable worlds of my paintings. With my mind filled to the brim with joyful color, whimsy, and movement, I translate my nighttime vignettes into fanciful abstract paintings. Hand printed paper is the base for my landscapes. Sensual paint continues to build the basic framework. Each new addition informs the next, while I build, destroy, erase and repaint. Its layers peek through exposing glimpses of these earlier strata. The work continues to evolve beyond my dream but it is the dream that sets the stage and sustains me until I reach my new world.
