STATEMENT

My work is edgy with a veneer of cute as I am inspired by fairytales and popular storybook characters.  I make my work approachable through the bright, coloring book-style visage while layering in metaphors and symbolism.  The paintings teeter towards uncomfortable content as I investigate political, social, feminist, and cultural nuances to provoke both visual and conversational discussions with my viewers. Sarcastic and conversational titles ask questions and make bold statements that illuminate the narratives and personalities to the doll-like characters.

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

PAINTING INFORMATION

Kate’s paintings are painted with acrylic paint. They are made on birch panels and covered with resin.

Paintings from the 7 Sins series have visible three-dimensional effects where the painting is created within layers of resin.

Original paintings should not be hung in direct sunlight.
