Kate Knox’s New England roots are evident throughout her mixed media work. Colonialism in all of its downfalls, the working waterfront – stoic and scraping, empty dairy barns still standing on pride alone. Taking all these ingredients from yesterdays living, Knox liberates them from their fixed traditions, their superstitions, and spins them into surreal illusions quite capable of anything. Combining historic mediums with contemporary awareness, Knox delves into the pitfalls and possibilities associated with trying to transcend ones personal, political and cultural history.
