Kate-Anna St. Valentine
You & Me (Part 1)
Kate-Anna St. Valentine is a Perth based artist and writer who has a hard time thinking about much except what goes on inside her heart (which is a lot). She recently left Paper Mountain studios, where she based herself for 2 years, and now works downstairs in a rundown, 1970s, brown brick house, surrounded by her pets and the memories she hoards.
This body of work entitled You & Me (Part 1) is a self indulgent exploration of the common bonds and subsequent breakage of those bonds that lie between different humans and each others' hearts.
Kate-Anna explores these feelings in tiny ways, using universal and infinite concepts to embed feelings that seem to be small and focused inward on ourselves, but are actually the largest and most common threads that tie every human together.
Kate-Anna has used materials such as minerals, meteorites, glass, paper, home tattoo and found creatures in this collection, stepping away slightly from the illustration based work she has done in the past.
