Dancing on your Own
Dancing on your Own
The mesmerising abstract painting "Dancing on Your Own" by renowned artist Katherine Wood is a testament to her brilliance. Executed in mixed media on canvas, it captures a figure dancing within a floating balloon against a haunting sky.
Fusing mixed media on canvas creates a textured 3D abstraction that interprets expansive landscapes. The artwork, mounted on a deep stretcher frame, masterfully manipulates depth perception, drawing viewers from all vantage points.
The canvas predominantly features a dramatic sky, while vast open spaces intricately weave colours, textures, depths, and light. Artist Katherine Wood's signature touch—a strategically placed natural element—restores balance to the emotive heavens. Each of Wood's artworks is undeniably spectacular, an inspirational masterpiece that reverberates with her artistic prowess.
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.
