Introducing the Laura Brophy Collection with Elyse Katz

September 16 / 2022 by Kennedy Contemporary

We are thrilled to highlight the works of local artist Elyse Katz, whose layered paintings epitomize the California lifestyle: natural, grounded, and magnetic. Beginning each painting without expectation of outcome, Elyse layers acrylic paint, oil pastels and found materials - vintage text and typography - until the final story “speaks.” Her compositions express a juxtaposition of contrasts: defined-versus-blurred edges or bold, opaque color fields abutting transparent color washes.

Carefully curated by Laura Brophy, this selection of sixteen works is on view at Kennedy Contemporary from September 16th to October 9th. Shop the collection here, or text/call 714.519.6297 to enquire.
