Color is not solely the domain of the artist, but rather an integral part of the broader community. The red shoes spotted walking down the sidewalk serve as a parallel to the striking canyons in our very own backyards. The verdant greens of the golf courses remind us of the connections we share with our friends as we laugh and play together. The brilliant yellows and golds of the city lights beckon us to feel young and vibrant once more.
Color has the power to evoke a wide range of emotions and can take us on an emotional journey like no other element. Katie Castro skillfully employs harmonious displays of ceramic works in a diverse range of colors to bring out the unique connection of each viewer. Through her masterful use of color and form, Castro creates a space where her audience can experience a full range of emotions, from the cheerful and playful impression of purple to the deeper sense of loyalty and freedom that comes with blue
