This artwork, titled "Be The Fire and The Soul," portrays a serene yet dynamic landscape. Soft, muted tones of the sky blend seamlessly with the earthy hues of the ground, creating a harmonious balance. Wispy clouds and gentle lighting suggest a calm atmosphere, while darker patches hint at nature's underlying depth and complexity. A solitary figure, small yet significant, stands as a reminder of the human connection to the vastness of the natural world. This piece invites viewers to immerse themselves in its tranquil beauty and reflective mood.

Through the harmonious fusion of mixed media on canvas, a textural 3D abstraction unfolds. Mounted on a deep stretcher frame, the artwork expertly plays with depth perception. Katherine Wood's signature touch—a subtle natural element—restores perspective, harmonizing with the emotive skies.

Katherine Wood's artistic creations are unequivocally spectacular. "Be The Fire and The Soul" captures serene wonder, showcasing the artist's skill and vision.

 

About Artist

Katherine Wood was born in Cape Town in 1975. Although she studied Fine Arts at the Frank Joubert Art School and Stellenbosch University, Katherine Wood signed all her early work under a pseudonym because she felt insecure and feared rejection.

Decades later, her large, expressive artworks – a fusion of mixed media presenting an abstract interpretation of wide-open landscapes and capturing the energy of nature – are held in various private and corporate collections throughout the world, including South Africa, the UK, the USA, Canada, Germany, Australia and Switzerland.

"My art has become a meditative outlet for me as I have struggled with anxiety and depression since my teens," she reveals. "I now look at painting as an outlet for self- growth."

In 2000, Wood launched an art studio for local artists in Observatory, Cape Town, displaying an eclectic range of works from paintings and sculptures to performance pieces. "Initially, I did a bit of painting on the side but didn't dare to put my art out there. Then I exhibited one of my works and sold it on the first day. I did another and sold it within a week."

Wood has exhibited in her hometown, London, Dubai, New York, Sydney, Brisbane, Johannesburg, Durban, Melbourne, and Beijing, among other cities. Since 2013, she has lived in Queensland, Australia, with her husband and two daughters.
