About

Europa 22 Study is a black, white, gray and dark blue acrylic on paper painting. This Abstract art work on paper is 24x18. It is study based on the planet Europa. It is currently unframed. Stephanie Cate is an emerging abstract painter based out of Los Angeles, California. The Europa Series by Cate is based on the moon, Europa and Stephanie’s fascination with this planet, it’s structure and the potential for life. Europa (Jupiter II), is the sixth-closest moon of Jupiter, and the sixth-largest moon in the Solar System. It is slightly smaller than Earth's moon and is unique in the solar system, being thought to have a global ocean of water in contact with a rocky seafloor. If the ocean is proven to exist, Europa could be a promising place to look for life beyond Earth. Its surface is smooth and bright, consisting of water ice crisscrossed by long, linear fractures. This dynamic environment is captured in the thick acrylic brushstrokes on wood panel or paper. Cate spent most of her childhood in France, before relocating to Los Angeles, California at fourteen. She spent a couple of years as an apprentice for a muralist in Santa Monica, painting large scale murals for casinos in Las Vegas and private residences before she decided to pursue her own artistic path. She attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, receiving a BFA in painting. Being surrounded by the history and architecture of France as a child and the grand decaying beauty of former centuries left an early impression on her that still influences her work to this day. After working for over a decade in a photographic based mixed-media process, Stephanie returned to her original love of pure abstraction to delve in further and reconnect with freshness and liberation of texture, line, shape and color. Cate's work is in public and private collections including Kelly Wearstler, Renee Zellweger, Annabeth Gish, Mr. Avi Amiel (President, Art Collector International Magazine), Rasa Center for Yoga (Oregon) and Wynn Tower Suites (Las Vegas).
