Katrin is a Canadian artist born in Vancouver, British Columbia; in 1990 she moved to Costa Rica where she has been living ever since and developing herself artistically.
In 2006 she graduated from Veritas University majoring in Graphic Design, However her passion for painting was far greater.
Having exhibited in various countries like Costa Rica, Canada and the United States has made her win many distinctions with her paintings of women in a technique that she has made her own, the weave.
She says, "Weaving, also considered a “woman’s task” in many civilizations allows me to create a piece that can be completely different to the eye simply by how you look at it, up close or from afar. Each strip becomes a fragment, a pixel, an experience, a scar that makes up the piece we see before us."
2019 has been pivotal in Aason's work giving emphasis to the weave and symbolism whether it be through colors, shape, or the combination of the two and using it to represent her most inner thoughts and feelings.
With her latest series Transcend being a great success in Cuba this past April, she uses her work to express how all the experiences we go through or people that we meet, for example, aren't placed in our lives by chance, but for a reason, to help us grow and evolve into better human beings. This has led her to start working on her current body of work entitled Angels & Demons, an inner battle we face on a daily basis, it just depends on us, who wins...stay tuned.
Therefore come closer, see, experience, all that is obvious and hidden, and get lost in the intricacy of the psyche.
