Tucker Harris blogs about the self portraits of Catherine Kehoe.
Harris writes: "Kehoe knows how to make a simple view very dynamic. Each head becomes a landscape, light contrasting dark and vibrant colors juxtaposed with muted hues to carve out the portrait. It’s easy to distinguish features by leaning on tonal contrast (just add a bit more black), so that’s why I am particularly enthralled with her use of hue. She pairs warm with cool colors, the bright with dull, and the light with dim… Each stroke counts. Each blot stands on its own and plays a part. Each is bold and carries with it the artist’s intent: that strength translates into the forms of the image."
