• Kate Yesberg

"The ideas come into my imagination. Usually colours, combinations of colour, or simple shapes or compositions. But mostly I feel them, I feel the energy I want them to carry."

Kate Yesberg is an abstract painter based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington, New Zealand.

Yesberg's paintings comprise elaborate compositions of colour and strong geometric form, and are often large-scale. She names each series for its intrinsic energy; a mood, feeling, or experience that is she is exploring and trying to capture in her work.

The paintings are built up layer by layer from a black canvas as an act of devotional labour that is performed by hand, without tape. The effect is striking geometric patterns which from afar suggest hard-lines and manicured structures, though up close reveal the hand that rendered them and its human imperfection.
