Katherine Parthimos is a Montreal based inter-disciplinary artist and recent graduate of Concordia University from the Studio Arts program. Primarily based in painting, she is interested in exploring imagery of people and their relationships in a modern day setting through the use of cultural references and a bright, distinct art- style.
Katherine Parthimos is interested in portraying scenes of people and their relationships in a state of motion and conversation as well as the contrary, silence and the feeling of singularity in in a group of people. Taking inspiration from moments in her everyday life, she transforms them into a completely interpretive narrative. She paints the figures in her work to act as neutral characters, which allows for a unique reaction and narrative for each viewer. Therefore allowing the individual imagination of the viewer to become a collaborative aspect when engaging with her work.
