STATEMENT

My work is edgy with a veneer of cute. The paintings teeter towards uncomfortable content with a coloring book stye visage. Sarcastic and conversational titles ask questions and make bold statement that illuminate the personalities of my characters, and metaphors within each piece With a distinctive bright color palette, stylistic lines, and the big eyes and blank stares of my characters, I investigate political, social, feminist, and cultural nuances to provoke discussions with my viewers.

Due to some of graphic nature and adult content related my work, not all artwork is listed here. Additional work is for purchase at www.katerenee.com

PROCESS

Kate’s paintings are painted with acrylic paint. They are made on panel and covered with resin. Some of the work has the painting positioned within various layers of the resin which creates a 3D effect.
