For the most part Kait Rhoads’ work is inspired by nature, the end product being stylized or cartoon like forms made of sparkling faceted glass. She is particularly adept at describing the world beneath the sea through this form, and she sees soft carving as a kind of interactive way of transcending reality – a kind of memory of the world around us.
艺术家简介 About The Artist
The aquatic realm is the root of much of Kait’s work, the result of spending six years on a boat in the Caribbean in her youth and where she also learned to dive. In particular he is drawn to forms that describe influence and reaction, which is linked to her early survival mechanisms. She sees the Soft Sculptures as a type of hyper-reality or memory of an interaction with the world around her; an occurrence absorbed in her brain as a multilayered sensory experience that creates an emotional footprint.
