BEAUTY: Painting--Nicole Katsuras

Using oil paints as if she were frosting a cake, Nicole Katsuras globs, squeezes, lines, swirls, and spreads her way across her canvases. This makes the topographical element as important as the composition and color. Visually delicious.

Seeing them out of context, one might expect these pieces to be smallish, perhaps two or three feet. But her work is quite large. Look at this installation view:
