Ketzia Schoneberg is best known for her heightened palette and energetic brushwork in paintings exploring themes of the wild mammalian, the intersection between domestic and feral realities, and familial intimacy. Her expressionist paintings straddle the figurative and abstract.
Ketzia grew up in San Francisco in a decidedly bohemian home with three artist parents; well-known visual artists, composers, musicians and actors were frequent guests. Ketzia plays classical violin on occasion, and lives and works in the Pacific Northwest.
Her paintings employ acrylic, charcoal and pastel on frequently raw canvas or board. The pastels are from her late father’s art studio and her kid’s art supply stash - a good choice for the familial themes in the Tandem series of paintings. The loose, impasto brushwork and accidental nature of dripping paint reinforce the feral, earthy content of her work.
