Katrina Brennan of Art by K. Brennan creates colorful, vibrant acrylic paintings that represent nature, wildlife, the universe, and a touch of fantasy. She seeks to bring a sense of wonder to the viewer, enticing them to ask questions about our existence and the reality we live in.
Since I was a young child I've had vivid dreams, sometimes playing out like a science fiction or fantasy movie. These dreams were so realistic that they would inspire me to ask questions about the world we live in, the universe, and why we exist. I've been seeking to communicate some of my visions as I've grown as an artist for the past 30 years.
Art should speak to the person looking at it. It should evoke a feeling, a thought or a memory, or it can even cause a person to ask questions about their own beliefs and paradigms. I paint things that I can connect with, and in doing so I count on at least a handful of other people to connect with it as well. That connection can develop with eye contact between the subject and the viewer, or it can happen in the presentation of subject matter. Art speaks, and has always spoken throughout history. Maybe you'd like to connect with one of my paintings in your home. Just remember though, art doesn't have to match the couch.
