The Artist: Kathleen Weich (Canadian, 1957-2011)
Weich's paintings are based on the abstract notions of landscape. Using a conceptual approach rather than representing a more traditional landscape, she is able to take more liberties with the subject matter, colour and paint. Taking from city and rural images whether imagined or real, Weich uses different views as a tool for composition.
Kate Weich was born in Victoria, BC on September 29, 1957 and was considered a respected and highly accomplished visual artist. She studied Visual Arts at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton for two years before moving to Toronto in 1987. She then continued her studies at York University, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1990. She supported her developing career as a professional artist by working as a popular bartender for many years at the famed Montreal Bistro & Jazz Club in Toronto until she launched a successful full-time career as a contemporary abstract painter. Her vibrant works are sold and still exhibited by leading galleries across Canada. Kate died in 2011 after a long and heroic battle with cancer. The Kathleen Weich Bursary in Visual Art at York University was established and is awarded annually to a full time undergraduate BFA student majoring in Visual Art.
The artist had solo shows at Parts Gallery, Lipman Contemporary, Spin Gallery, Red Head Gallery and more.
The Story: "I love colour and never tire of the drama it lends. The emotion attached to colour is a major part of my work. My aim is not to present a finalized view of a given subject; rather, I hope to offer a place where you can contemplate and bring your own visions."
