Kate Timmerman

The physical relationships created in my work allude to intellectual and natural references provoking an experience for the viewer. The handmade eccentric quality of the painted, stained, carved and layered wax surfaces combined with found objects and non-traditional materials allow me to engage in themes of alienation, mystery, betrayal, consequence, courage, mortality and non-violence. Turning inert materials to the service of meaning is for me, the essence of communication. The physicality of materials and the link between aesthetics and social, moral and political imperatives is of great interest to me.
