I’m so “radical”! Or more accurately, my painting “Hanging Around” is radical. This painting is being featured in the “Radical” Geometry Collection on Saatchi Art’s homepage. It’s a fun, colorful collection of many other paintings that focus on shape, line and geometry in their compositions. Curated by Associate Curator Bridget Carron, you can see the collection by clicking: Saatchi Radical Geometry Art Collection.
Hanging Around, Mixed Media (acrylic, paper, ink), 24″ x 48″, two panel cradled diptych, $2000
The concept for the painting is based on a nightmare I had about the two things that scare me most…bats and spiders. In my dream, they bred and mutated into bat-spiders that fly and weave webs in which they catch their prey. Creepy!
I am one of the artists highlighted in today’s ArtFinder newsletter. Artfinder is a marketplace for people to discover and buy affordable original art online. Why not you stop by www.artfinder.com and see if you discover some art that is calling to be hung in your home/office?
Saatchi Online, an online dealer of original paintings and prints, just started carrying my work. I sold my first print this week (“Hide and Seek”) through their website. Though the original of this painting is 48″ x 48″, they sell prints of this painting in 14″x14″ and 16″x16″ sizes. They do a particularly good job with framing and mailing prints at a very reasonable cost. So if you’ve always wanted to own a “Kathy Ferguson” painting but it didn’t fit within your budget, buying a print is a great option. Plus, at www.saatchionline.com, there are hundreds of other great artists to view and find something perfect for your walls.
“Hide and Seek”, Mixed Media on panel, 48″ x 48″
I recently started selling my mixed media paintings online through Art Finder. Art Finder is an online seller of “authentic art from independent galleries and artists” from around the world. That’s me…an independent artist =)
I had two mentions in their daily e-mail newsletter, which they send out to their client list. The first mention was for “New Mixed Media Artists” last week. Today, I received another mention in their newsletter under the category of “New American Artists to Watch”. I hope there are people out there “watching”. (pun intended)
