PRACTICE MAKES PROGRESS
'What Picasso Taught Me
– A Journey of Exploration'
Kate’s new 30+ piece solo collection debuts
at the Holland Area Arts Council
150 E 8th Street, Holland, Michigan
May 19 – July 5. 2022.
Inspired by Picasso’s eleven lithographs, “The Bull,” a series where Picasso stripes away the animal’s details to its essential form, Kate chose to do the same, taking her signature birch tree from a detailed study to its simplest form in 12 paintings, while continuing to capture the ‘spirit’ of the tree.
Kate explains, “Art can be about painting every detail, but there’s also freedom to explore more. Seeking basic shapes among the realistic elements is a concept I knew would push me to grow. It’s an honor to give color and art back to the world.”
Captivated with the breakdown process, Kate expanded her collection to include the deconstruction of two other motifs.
The event is free and details of an opening reception will be announced in late winter 2022.
