Kathryn’s images capture specific, resonating moments in her life, rendered in details that are abbreviated and abstracted enough to invite broad interpretation. She works best when she has a strong emotional connection to my subject matter. That connection is often intimate, ambivalent, and long term.
Kathryn works to capture an individual’s gesture or the mood of a particular place or time, then build on my figurative anchors. She is continually amazed by the magic of monotypes. They demand total attention to detail, yet always yield unintended effects. She plans and sketches and prepares, yet at some point, the image invariably takes over, driving the process. She finds profound satisfaction in the tools, the techniques, and the unexpected results.
