Kathryn Kain
Harvesting Myths: The Art of Kathryn Kain
8.5x11 P.B.


The underpinning of Kain's art is based on her consummate skill as a master printer of graphics and her preternatural energy that she applies to all aspects of her life, from creating art to dancing and inline roller skating. These two qualities come together and allow her great freedom, in a constant outpouring of art, to layer and mix drawing, collage and printmaking together in sophisticated surfaces that would not be possible for an artist of lesser skill and experience. In her most characteristic works, Kain creates delicate background veils of diffused color on which she boldly disperses her signature imagery that are personal symbolic aspects of self -- flowers, fruits, boldly graphic vintage product labels and delicate transfer illustrations.
