Piece description from the artist
She puts up a good front. She is exposed but calm. Yet somewhere inside is she pulling, ripping, and tearing to get out. To get away. Haven’t we all wanted to get out of our skin for one reason or another? This painting it the realization of that thought.
Katherine (aka Katie) Blackwell (aka Ghant) is a local Charlotte, NC artist. She paints in acrylics and oils, and creates commissioned portraits, surreal figures, and abstract/ impressionist home decor pieces.
She lives, and somehow paints, with two children, a dog, a nursing career, and an awesome husband that make all this happen.
