Katja Yoon uses oil and acrylic paint on canvas to capture the moods and atmospheres of her surrounds. Her expressive works lay bare the connections between impulsivity and consciousness, the bold colors and dramatic lines in her paintings highlighting the interplay of dueling energies. The artist often layers subtle shades of white to create soft, harmonious backgrounds and then paints blocks of powerful foreground shades, ultimately finding the precarious balance between vitality and harmony. Yoon draws from her Scandinavian and South Korean heritage to create works that are restrained in composition and streamlined in palette. Blue Sea and Iceland each feature centralized compositions with jolts of line and color hovering like a gash in the middle of the canvas. In works titled Erotica and Pleasure, Yoon creates organic surfaces in which the layering of color and line becomes almost anthropomorphic, the canvases resembling undulating human forms. Finally, Winter is a sparse abstraction hinting at a grey, snow covered landscape. The monochrome layers of color have a transportive quality that is simultaneously energetic and peaceful.
