Artist in Residence – Kathryn Naylor

Kathryn Naylor, a painter from Canada, often seeks to express the changes of season and weather in her work.  Previous visits to Iceland have influenced her painting, and this residency draws her imagination to the colours of winter and the interdependence of darkness and light.

‘There are always lessons, and turning points: the surprise of recognizing everything you wanted to express in just a few strokes of colour.  Following that path, and finding that “simplicity” is not so.
Learning what not to do.’
