Katherine Lampert is a Chicago based painter whose work considers texture, color, entropy, and the evolving relationship between nature and technology. Her multi-layered painting process often begins with a photographic study of pattern in nature, such as a cloudscape, the lace-like remnants of a two billion-year-old fossilized sea creature, or the unusual markings on a rare tropical insect. These images serve as inspiration and a point of departure for her semi-abstract works. Katherine is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and holds an MFA from Northwestern University.
