There's a connection between the moon and lunatics – and between artists, geniuses and insanity. The moon's brilliant side dazzles us like a painting; it's so romantic we even christen the dry waterless features as "seas." The other side of the moon is dark to us; we never see it. Perhaps what's on the dark side is indeed the other side of brilliance. Here, the dark side of the moon drips with brain ganglia, and artists and geniuses suffering the same insanities (dementia, schizophrenia, OCD) cluster together on the same nail or adjacent ones.
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.
