In my work this romantic ideal of union with the natural world conflicts with our contemporary impact on the environment. These pieces are in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops. They also borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural touchstones. In some pieces aspects of the human figure stand-in for ourselves and act out sometimes harrowing, sometimes humorous transformations which illustrate our current relationship with the natural world.
Kate McDowell criou as imagens abaixo, removendo todas as barreiras entre homem e natureza na frente da destruição que foi criada. A escolha pela porcelana como material ainda ajudou no fator dramático da arte. Gostei bastante.
