Kate Hooray Osmond
"Topo" - Contemporary Abstract Painting - colorful - aerial landscape - gold

2022

About the Item

"Topo" is an abstract landscape painting featuring blue and green hues. Kate Hooray Osmond is inspired by the work of Hilma af Klint and Damien Hirst. “My series of paintings deal with sensation and ultra-color,” Kate explains. “I am considering the concepts of over-consciousness, Horror Vacui and the overlap between joy and terror. In visual art, “horror vacui” (from Latin “fear of empty space”), also kenophobia (from Greek “fear of the empty”), is the filling of the entire surface of a space or an artwork with detail. For this series titled “Gold,” each piece is influenced by a topic of consideration: technology, super-nature, genetics, pharmaceuticals, perception. As Kate studies and meditates on these subjects, her path of investigation grows more and more intense until she teeters between becoming overwhelmed by fear for our future and a euphoria filled with hope and intention. “I feel so much life that I am paralyzed by it, and I am confounded by how sensation and numbness can blend together,” says Kate. “All that glitters is Gold.” Born in 1983, Kate Hooray Osmond earned her MFA in Studio Art from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2019, and her BA from Saint Mary's College of Maryland in 2005.
