Katherine Kisa
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: I have always been fascinated by music and the wide variety of machines and instruments involved in its production. This series of paintings illustrates the complexity and close association between the mechanical, instrumental, and artistic components of music. Color is added with oil or acrylic paint to lend a visual interpretation of the music and to evoke an emotional response. The nostalgic feel of the pieces arises not only from the choice of vinyl as my medium , but also from the musical selections. On any given piece one may find a single genre of music or a combination of jazz, blues, soul, rock, or classical music. Although we are firmly entrenched in the digital age, I create my pieces with the first item which started my intense love of music, the vinyl record. In addition to recycling the records, I incorporate found objects such as old record player components and computer parts to create the assemblages. These are subsequently painted to reflect a range of musical styles from the simplest ballads to the most complex symphonies.
