\n

Textures and surfaces of objects found in nature have always held a fascination for the artist.  Both working directly and refer entially with actual plant detritus\, King inserts digital processes into h er artistic method before applying more classical media to her finished wor k. Ms. King comments: “I consider 2D and 3D scanning and printing to be mid way processes that enable me to visualize what form the final work may take before I complete it with more hands on traditional drawing and painting.”

\n

Botanical detritus\, which have had a past life as plants\, dry an d age\, to become insignificant leavings. These humble fragments are treate d as “relics” by the artist and constructed into “Divas” and “Dragons. In t urn\, these 3D assemblages serve as the benevolent or sinister iconic subje cts giving the dead botanical cast offs a new “life” in the improvised visu al narratives that emerge in the finished works of art.

\n

Kathleen Ki ng lives and works in Chicago and exhibits her work there as well as in New York\, Seoul and Tokyo.  Her work is included in many collections\, nation ally and internationally.  For the past six summers\, Ms. King had been inv ited as a visiting adjunct professor to teach watercolor and drawing course s in the  International Summer Campus Programs at Korea University.  Kathle en King is also on the board of the Skopelos Art Foundation\, in Skopelos\, Greece where in addition to serving on the board\, she has taught and held workshops in artistic practice.
