Artist Statement/ Biography
Kate Stone’s work is a response to the way we relate to space and it challenges associations we have with familiar architectural structures. Through repurposing and recontextualizing raw building materials, found objects and photography, Stone seeks new ways of organizing space. The sculptures, drawings and photographs break space apart and rearrange the pieces to highlight the banal and the over-looked, revealing hidden substructures and questioning established functions of common objects. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional planes are interwoven to explore imagery's role in our surroundings. The work combines the abstract and the everyday in order to redefine them – to sever context and meaning, elevating form, color and material.---
