Drawings by Kate Wood

Exhibition Dates: January 29 - March 24, 2018

Reception: Friday, February 2, 5 - 7pm

 

 

Developed from a daily drawing practice, With Sprinkles is an adaptation from “The Best Comic Book Ever,” an ongoing body of work from Albuquerque artist Kate Wood. Stricken with a chronic disease, Wood undertook a daily drawing practice to help pass the time while receiving medical attention, and as a way to accept her time spent in treatment. Compiled into 8 sketchbooks, to date, Wood will complete her 500th drawing on January 28th, 2018, coincidentally the day these drawings are installed at the Inpost Artspace. Her practice has developed into a sustained narrative that draws upon a large cast of colorful and amorphous creatures, functioning as symbols and allegory for greater personal themes of health and loss. The pieces in this exhibition focus on a few of the over 200 characters she has been developing, allowing them to explore a more specific narrative than that of her sketchbooks.

 

Kate Wood is an artist and a farmer, currently working in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She has spent the past decade working in organic agriculture on the east coast, and was most recently the owner/operator of a small farm business in rural Illinois. Chronic health issues forced her to leave her chosen career, but brought her back to a daily art practice. Kate is deeply inspired and influenced by storytelling, folklore, comic books, mythology, and pattern.

 

 

Exhibition may be viewed during the reception, Outpost performances, box office hours, (M-F 2-5:30pm), and by appointment.
