The distance to a location, the distance of a memory, the distance in a space
Kate’s new work takes concepts associated with previous investigations of the idea of “place” and links this to a more specific approach to understanding the outer and inner confines of lived spaces and the function this has on memory and identity. Nostalgia becomes a psychological lens with which meaning is constructed and maintained, reconstructing our identities and relationships to environments. Employing the use of mixed media, her current work negotiates a distilling of facts from perception and memory. What remains is a mediation that is between two lost entities. It is within this sphere that Kate’s current practice and interests lie.
In 2005, Kate moved to California from New York to pursue her MFA. She has a BFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design.
