A joint work of word and image. Oil on canvas with an acetate ribbon of stamped words. Kathryn's oil paintings explore a magnification of the body's landscape, an amplification that circumvents gaze with engagement. These abstract works perform as a prompt for a dialogue with writer R. D. Wakeman. The spontaneous words are transferred to transparency and suspended over the image. The words cast their shadows, merging with the image or disappearing, depending on the light and position of spectator. Kathryn and R. D. Wakeman's work interrogates relationships between word & image, writer & artist, mother & daughter, feminism & surrealism.
