Kathleen Hope’s work can best be described as an organic fusion of life itself. Hope mixes cements from an array of materials, including dried pigments, paper, plaster and marble dust to create textured layers and unexpected details. Each of her designs is wonderfully open to interpretation, inspiring connections through color, contrast and her knack for serendipitous design, reflective of the beauty of life’s unpredictability.
From her use of dots, grids and stripes, to her innovative and adaptable panel installations, Hope’s work transcends stylistic boxes and represents a bold foray in contemporary art.
Based in Fountain Hills, Arizona, Kathleen’s background is in interior design and color psychology. She uses her knowledge, both learned and instinctive, to create “lived in” pieces that have been described as organic, raw and industrial, yet warm and inviting.
