Katherine Lubar

Katherine Lubar

Hometown: Dallas

Based in: London

Originally from Dallas, Texas, and based in London, Katherine Lubar obtained a Post-Graduate Diploma from City & Guilds, London. She has exhibited at The Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in the US and in London at the Royal Academy, Vegas Gallery, Griffin Gallery, Arthouse1 and the Angus-Hughes Gallery. She was a finalist for the Evening Standard Contemporary Painting Prize in 2017 and in 2018 was shortlisted for the Wells Art Contemporary. In 2020 she received a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
Lubar’s work is influenced by both living in England and growing up in The United States. The strong light that is present in her paintings and the man-made structures it falls upon is a direct response to growing up in Dallas, with its almost blinding light, exaggerated by the modern buildings and their corresponding shadows with their straight lines and flat expansive structures. Other important aspects of her work include the interplay between negative and positive space, a concurrence of flatness and depth, as well as investigations into the relationships between colours.

More About Katherine Lubar

IconInspires

What inspires you?

Light and Shadow - this is my main passion

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I first take a photo or do a drawing of a light pattern or shadow that I see. I then work out the composition, using pencil. Once that's done I spent weeks on small colour sketches, deciding on the colour. Once I'm happy, I then start the painting. Some paintings take me 6 months, some a year, as I like to build up many paint layers, which takes a long time.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

geometric, colourful, semi-abstract

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

Edward Hopper, Vermeer, Patrick Caulfield, Michael Craig-Martin

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

A tiny razor attached to a pencil stub which is very useful for removing tiny bumps in the paint

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Red dots do not equate to quality of work. My art teacher said this to me once, and it is invaluable, as many people equate sales with quality of work, but it often isn't the case. Some artists' work is 'discovered' much later (often too late for them to know!)

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

I see light patterns and shadows I like on the street, in magazines and on TV.
