Kate Dodd - Cut Series

Much of my three dimensional work involves using linear elements and color to examine particular environments; my two-dimensional work deals with parallel issues. I construct drawings using photomontages of various sites as a base and back them with colored paper; the resulting surface creates a canvas I cut into and/or weave over. The space that the photographs depict is warped and altered by overlapping various views. Cutting away from the resulting image creates a cast shadow, or echo, of what is no longer there, enhanced by the glowing color reflected from the back of the drawing onto the wall.
Wow! Take a look at some more of Kate's lovely work here.
