Many of my paintings can be described as being in the genre “abstract realism,” that is, taking a real object or scene and abstracting it. This allows for the viewer to put him or herself in the scene in a way that doesn’t restrict the imagery to a single location or time.
I want my colorful paintings to suggest experiences and feelings in a way that sparks viewers’ imaginations, draws them into the paintings and makes them want to stay.
Art has been a part of Kay Reinke’s life since she began painting at the age of 12, when she began studying at The Houston Museum of Fine Art and the Texas Art Institute. The daughter of a journalist, who was also a cartoonist for the Army newspaper during WW II, she was always encouraged in her artistic efforts. She divides her time between her studios in Waco and Canyon Lake in the Texas Hill Country.
