Introducing Kate Golding
About Joanna McFarland

Music, especially Jazz, Blues, and classical guitar, inspire and inform my non-objective work. I take liberties with my paint and am free in my choice of colour, shape, and form in response to sound.

I paint with acrylics on canvas and stone paper, a paper-like product manufactured from calcium carbonate bonded with a high-density polyethylene. The paper is smooth, white, and non-absorbent. Paint can be manipulated freely and areas can be washed off the reveal layers of colour beneath.

Following in the footsteps of 20th Century abstract expressionists, I feel an affinity with contemporary non-objective painters such as Kazuo Shiraga, Saburo Murakami, and Lila Lewis Irving.
