Overview

‘I am drawn to process and exploring how colour, light and form interact. Equally important to my life and practice is following my intuition; being playful and inquisitive. I see abstraction as a representation of emotional states.

Kate Yesberg is an abstract painter based in Wellington, New Zealand.

Yesberg's abstraction explores dynamics between tension and release, finding a balance between these states so that her paintings take on a meditative, contemplative rhythm. Built layer upon layer atop a black canvas, painted geometric shapes intersect and fuse across Yesberg's canvas, forming compositions of rhythmic colours and forms which the artist adapts until an aesthetic and affective equilibrium is reached.

"I am drawn to process and exploring how colour, light and form interact," writes Yesberg. "Equally important to my life and practice is following my intuition; being playful and inquisitive. I see abstraction as a representation of emotional states. I am interested in capturing the ebb and flow of a person's inner life. What cannot be articulated, like in these paintings the experience of grief and settling into new states of being in the world."
