Katja Leibenath’s artwork begins when she experiences a scene or moment and records it through a series of photographs, drawings, and observations. These experiential sessions ignite new series of work. Back in the studio, Leibenath uses her visual recollection and her experiential memory to shape each piece based on the new body’s subject matter. She intuitively builds up the paintings in layers, relying just as heavily on formal considerations as she does on her source material. The finished painting can be interpreted as a record of the painting process as well as an exploration of subtle nuanced moments.
