|A glimpse of the process Kate uses to make drawings|
Kate takes an image and does a grid over it, then she lays rag paper over graph paper and whatever is in that space on the image, she recreates using small dots, and squiggles. The images are remarkable and convey such emotion, as she says, in the eyes especially. The images are amazing in themselves, but when you can see she has recreated them using small dots, it is incredible.
I hope to share these images with as many people as possible, they are so remarkable. I hope you enjoy seeing them.
Kate's piece, "A moment in time" is on display in Grand Rapids, Michigan from Sept 19- Oct 7th, 2012 in the ARTPRIZE competition. Other portraits in the series can be seen on her BLOG or in person in Grand Rapids. They include, John Lennon, Bruce Lee, and Princess Diana, who all used their moments in a special way.
