Riot No. 2, 2015
Kate Iverson's Riot No. 2 painting is the piece that started it all. CEO Kelly Groehler saw Kate post a photo of this piece on Instagram and said "I want that as a skirt!" and the rest is history. Riot No. 2 features black, white, and grey brushstrokes overlaying bright pops of neon underpainting. A maze of structural lines, abstractions, and spiked edges, this painting is both gestural and defined. A little bit punk rock and a little bit avant garde, this painting is a bold statement -- and a piece of Alice Riot history.
Created with tempera and acrylic on a 40 x 40-inch gallery canvas, Riot No. 2 easily takes center stage in any room without being overwhelming in size or color palette.
Kate Iverson's art was the initial inspiration that brought Kate and Kelly together as business partners. Kate is a painter and mixed media artist living and working in Minneapolis, MN. She has exhibited locally and nationally, often focusing on the parallels between nature and design. Kate’s work tells vibrant yet thoughtful color stories that move between flat and dimensional objects. See more of Kate's work at www.kateiversonart.com.
