Project Description

Visual artist Karin Neuvirth is best known for her textural acrylic paintings of wooded landscapes — which she refers to as treescapes — and her abstract floral landscapes. Color has always been the focus of Karin’s work, but when she moved to Durham, North Carolina in 2011, she began to work with a palette knife and developed her current style of textural acrylic paintings. She uses several layers of paint which she applies with a palette knife utilizing a broken color technique to create a sense of energy within her work. In order to form a more thorough understanding of color, she chooses to mix all of the colors that she uses from only the primary colors and white.
