I love both the arts and sciences. I don’t think of them as opposites, but as two sides of the same coin.

There are examples of their union all around me. I see beauty in parallel railway tracks overgrown with tangled weeds or the ordered lines of a musical staff sprinkled with random notes.

As a former engineer, I’m drawn to the precision of geometric shapes. As an artist, however, I like the organic forms of the natural world.

I work to artfully meld science and nature in my work to show the beauty of these two opposites and their symbiotic balance as they harmoniously blend to tell a story. My artwork reflects this synergy as I form the two disciplines into bold, colorful artwork.

“Bridging Our Differences” Mixed Media, 40″ x 30″

 

My current body of work illustrates the beauty of people working together on global issues to create positive change. It addresses ideas about community, collaboration, interconnection, building bridges and uniting together for a brighter future.

It touches on issues of social injustice, inequitable distribution of wealth, global warming, corporate farming and more.

 

"Spanning the Gap" Mixed Media, 36" x 36" by artist Kathy Ferguson. See her portfolio by visiting www.ArtsyShark.com

“Spanning the Gap” Mixed Media, 36″ x 36″

 

In “Spanning the Gap,” I illustrate how two groups (i.e., the NRA and the anti-gun lobby) could work together to close the gap between their polarized positions. They could reach out to each other to understand each other’s viewpoints. Through new understanding, each could compromise to bridge their issues to create solution acceptable to all.

 

"Communities" Mixed Media, 36" x 36" by artist Kathy Ferguson. See her portfolio by visiting www.ArtsyShark.com

“Communities” Mixed Media, 36″ x 36″

 

“Communities” illustrates how we are all part of not one but many communities. These communities might include our workmates, church group, country of birth or our neighbors. No one person has the exact same community as another, yet we rely on and are strengthened by our bonds with these groups. Imagine what could be accomplished if we brought all our communities together to work for a common goal that benefitted all.

 

"Corporate Farming" Mixed Media, 30" x 30" by artist Kathy Ferguson. See her portfolio by visiting www.ArtsyShark.com

“Corporate Farming” Mixed Media, 30″ x 30″

 

“Corporate Farming” speaks to the danger of industrial, chemical-based agriculture (the large cluster of shapes) and the United States government agencies continued support of the biotechnology industry and its pesticide-promoting crops as the path forward. This painting celebrates the slowly rising trend (the small groupings) of farmers turning toward organic and sustainable agriculture and shunning genetically engineered products and the chemicals they promote. Let’s support these forward-thinking growers to create a better, healthier world.

    Beautiful artwork! Glad you continued your work after you left Vail. Hope the family is well!

  2. Thank you for your kind words. How is your family? David and I split our time between New York City and Lake Creek (in the summer). Luckily, all three of my kids live in New York City near us so it’s great to able to get together often.
