> DESCRIPTION

Katrin Wiese has long been considered one of the region's most talented and inventive contemporary artists.  Her canvases are packed full with quirky characters and loaded symbolism that takes time to engage and fully interpret.

 

"I have a great time inventing characters for my paintings.  Clearly, it is my predilection to paint characters engaged in sometimes surreal narratives that really need to be deciphered by the viewer," states Wiese.

 

Originally from Schonberg, Germany, Wiese received her education from California State University, San Bernardino and has displayed her art at many important galleries and spaces throughout the Southern California region.   She is currently represented by the Hamilton Galleries in Santa Monica.

 

Last year, Wiese was selected Best in Show in RAM's Annual Members Show which involved over 150 artists from the region.  As a result of this award, she received this solo exhibition at the Riverside Art Museum (coinciding with the 2008 Members Show).
