Katherine Parker follows in the tradition of the great modern masters of Abstract Expressionism. Some of her works are heavenly, ghost-like, and ethereal, while others seem heavy and earthbound Her work appears to flow from her effortlessly. Yet, it is the evidence of her process, and the strength with which she paints that makes her work so compelling.
All of her works are emotionally charged brimming with content. Although Parker is influenced by the attitude and rigor of the New York School, she strives for an expressive vision that is modest rather than sublime.
