Kate Barrengos

San Francisco, United States


American,   —   Kate Barrengos paints aerial landscapes inspired by a change in perspective. She grew up on the Great Plains, surrounded by endless, orderly fields - flat and relentlessly unremarkable. Satellite images tell a different story. From above, the world is a spectacle of color, pattern, and infinite complexity - a gorgeous geometric abstraction. Her process begins with a virtual flyover. Industrial fields in the Midwest have circles of pivot irrigation. Marin County farms are small and meandering. City streets form a grid, and rectangles of buildings vie for position. In these satellite images we can see our society's priorities, and the politics of water, land use, and borders. Her paintings seek to capture how we impact our world. She lives and works near San Francisco in Marin County, California.
