Curator Michelle Bello at Sloan Miyasato Fine Art presents works by Marc Katano, a master of the ethereal and the expressive line. His newest large-scale paintings on paper once again hit their mark by combining the spontaneity of line with the physicality of paint or ink. With each piece the materials vary slightly, but all adhere to Katano’s interest in simple and natural movements. He is an intuitive painter whose works appear effortless. To achieve balance Katano applies dense strokes of paint in close proximity to one another, layering a darker form on a lighter form with rhythmic and nuanced patterns. Painting on handmade Japanese and Nepalese paper supplies a textural backdrop and evokes Katano’s respect for the natural world.

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Katano currently lives and works in Northern California. He received his BFA from California College of the Arts in Oakland, CA, and has exhibited his work in museums and galleries throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. His work is in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Jose Museum, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
