Katlin Spain pieces shapes of color together into large scale oil paintings influenced by her time spent in Key West. Bushes of bright flowers overflow from fenced yards, ripe fruit dangles from stems, and palms and poincianas overlap each other, covering the view above with different shades of green and vermillion.

I want the viewer to feel and taste the island’s theme of lush abundance in my paintings. I tend to place the shapes that reference ‘the organic’ onto angular planes. These are thought of as surfaces; table tops, shelves, etc. They overlap, float, and interrupt each other. The proposed title “Floral Feast” is meant to reference these planes, alluding to the idea of a feast of the organic on a table structure. A combination of ‘the rigid structure’ and ‘the loose organic’ existing together in chaos and balance.
