In the Arctic, it takes two weeks for the sun to rise. That must be spectacular. I tried to capture this performance with all the colors, textures, lights, and shadows that must gradually emerge, especially at the Arctic's central point where no land mass exists. (This two-week dawn launches one "day" of daylight that lasts half the year.)
Kate's "floating collages" are 3-D visual narratives told though multiple layers, to depict simultaneous space and time. Paper punches of various sizes and shapes and other objects create the collage pieces, almost like mosaic tiles. These pieces are mounted on nails, sandwiched between cut lengths of vinyl tubing, to hold them in place at varying heights and angles, on visible wood panels.
