“My oil paintings and prints are expressions of captured fleeting moments. Quick glimpses of the play of light and water transforming and reflecting our natural world. They are moments of human and natural interactions frozen in time. I consider my chance observations of these fleeting experiences worth preserving. Initially photographed, I recreate my emotional and visual response to the image in my home studio, working in either oil paint or intaglio.”
Kathryn Pryce was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1962. Coming from an artistic family, she was exposed to art and photography at an early age and her creative exploration was encouraged. She attended the Alberta College of Art (now the Alberta University of the Arts), in Calgary, Alberta. Graduating with a printmaking major. Kathryn spent most of her life in Calgary, raising her two daughters and, for 18 years, sharing her love of art with elementary school children.
Kathryn has been fortunate to travel extensively and much of her inspiration is drawn from trips and the photographs she has taken of the everyday scenes that have moved her. Always observing, her work captures simple, often fleeting moments when the elements, particularly light and water, react with a subject.
Hoping that viewers of her work pause to appreciate the unique beauty and detail of these fleeting moments, is the objective that moves Kathryn to share her work. Kathryn has exhibited in Alberta and Ontario and her work is in private and corporate collections across North America.
