Britton’s works will be showcased all month long on our coffeehouse walls, and we’ll kickoff the exhibit with our usual monthly ART SHOW on Friday, Sept. 6th from 6 to 10 p.m. Please join us to welcome Kate Britton to Coffeebar, be the first to view some amazing art by this local talent, “meet and greet” with Kate, and enjoy the company of friends. Wine and beer will be available for purchase, as well as food from our evening fare menu.
Below is Britton’s personal statement, which describes her approach to art and her work:
“My work primarily looks at the relationship between industry and nature. I am interested in the physical process of creating the work and how that early intervention plays a huge part in the initiation and journey of a piece. I select materials based on their physical qualities and the potential they present to allow manipulation that essentially could reveal a variety of possibilities and associations.
By transforming these materials, whether computer driven, manipulated in photography, or physically by hand, the evolution begins in a way that subverts their original function as a standard consumer or industrial product, introducing an element of contradiction.
I am not trying to recreate, my objective is to bring a new and ambiguous visual, this leading the viewer to look and discover something unfamiliar, perhaps questioning, thus allowing the senses to wander into different directions, and see where that takes you.”
We look forward to seeing you Friday, Sept. 6th!
