Kathe Fraga

 

Kathe Fraga's paintings evoke the hand-painted, timeworn walls of a grand old Parisian mansion. Each piece resembles an aged decorative fresco panel adorned with birds and flowers, vines and leaves in a modern Chinoiserie style. Kathe's original paintings are acrylic on frescoed canvas, finished with lacquer.

Kathe’s art is inspired by the beauty and romance of old: vintage silky kimonos, hand-worked embroidery, lacquered little boxes, blocked wallpaper and panels from years ago, distressed with age, revealing a soft loveliness still…you’ll see layered colors peeking out behind one another—pinks, blues, lavender—speckles of gold, a wisp of glitter. Each piece meant to be seen as part of a larger scene that’s been hidden away…until now.

The images are the influence of time spent by the artist living in the beautiful old cities of South America, Denmark, England, and France can be clearly felt.
