"A Treasure Trove of Memories at New Century Artists Gallery”
By author Anne Rudder, Gallery and Review
“Katia Gerasimov is an abstractionist whose concentration on color brings forth memories of particular places. She is world traveled and the colors, textures and atmospheres of all the frequented places have influenced her paintings in her interior pictures that are geometric in execution, as in “Terra Cotta” or diffused as in “The Grotto.” Her oil “Moonlight” is particularly striking for its moody, mysterious scumbling where the viewer feels she is looking up at a tranquil night, the moon’s subtle image faintly discerned in the dark, clouded sky. In contrast, drops and squiggles of paint, reminiscent of Mark Tobey’s work, cover the canvas in “Kilim,” bringing a tension to the picture, animating the palette colors. With a technique employing drawn, whirled incising into the acrylic surface, “Ribbons” exposes a mottled underlying collage, creating intensity in comparison with the works subtle coloration.”

"Dakota Michaluk and Catherine Gerasimov both work in France manifesting divergent styles and subjects in their art. Michaluk combines painted imagery with photography in expressive acrylic works, superimposing figures on photographs. She is a master draughtsman where her graceful, gestural figures contrast and create tensions over the stark, modern architectural photographic images on the visual surface.
CATHERINE GERASIMOV gives full expression to abstraction, reveling in the exploration of color through energetic application of a vibrant palette, incising and punctuating the picture plane using an exciting gamut of techniques. Her abstractions are emotional impressions of her travels throughout the world and she is an accomplished collagist who makes dramatic choices in subject, further animating her color vibrancy."
