Katie Ré Scheidt


Artist’s Statement

Much like improv, my canvases are unscripted and often left in a state of dynamic incompletion. Trusting my inner voice, and putting my ego away, I can flood color, make marks, react honestly and support choices…having no specified goal. It’s about letting ideas flow with the suspension of judgement.

Katie Ré Scheidt is an abstract expressionist artist, primarily working in acrylics, gouache, oils and charcoal. A sumptuous palette and dynamic approach to painting contribute to Scheidt’s style. Uplifting and lyrical, Scheidt’s work is unscripted and often left in a state of dynamic incompletion. The work is about letting ideas flow with the suspension of judgement.
