Katherine Boxall constructs large-scale canvases that incorporate a ground of lush oil and pastels that explode with saturated color.
Boxall, who completed her MFA at San Francisco Art Institute and moved to Charlotte in the summer of 2018, creates in her west Charlotte studio, a haven for her work with acrylics, spray paint, pastels and oils. She began as a figurative painter. She gradually loosened her lines, breaking down the form of the body into broad expanses and elongated, rounded contours. Since 2018, Boxall has worked primarily in abstraction.
