Kathleen Waterloo is a Chicago based artist working in both encaustic and egg tempera. Architectural elements serve as the impetus for her pieces which she has exhibited throughout the United States and overseas, in England, Italy, Singapore and Spain. Her works were included at the Chicago Cultural Center for Art Futura, curated by James Rondeau from the Art Institute, in addition to being in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art Biennial.
Waterloo received her BFA at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL in1996, and has studied at the Harrington Institute of Interior Design, Chicago, IL and at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb.
”My works are architectural fantasies which attempt to record the urban/urbane/mundane observances I see on a daily basis. With an approach towards monumental simplicity – given any scale – an elevation, floor plan, or structure becomes a vision construed in space.
Recent inspirations have been ‘mapquest’ routes, artists whose work is architectural and architects whose work is art, woodwork, rodeo bucking chutes, Chicago urban landscapes, international airport floor plans, architectural elements from travels to England, Italy, Hong Kong, and Spain, inner cardboard packaging (tectiforms), and an Illinois Army National Guard sign.”
