Kathe Fraga

Inspired by the Chinoiserie style that was highly popular in the grand mansions of 17th-18th century Europe, Fraga’s paintings are bright and colorful contemporary versions. Her decoratively designed canvases are adorned with birds, flowers, vines and leaves.

Working on plaster textured canvases, the artist layers hand painted designs, sometimes sanding rough between the layers of paint to evoke the time worn surfaces of antique wall coverings. And with a high gloss finish coat, the painting is sealed and preserved continuing this richly decorative Chinoiserie mode into the 21st century.
