Kathy King Solo 2011

July 23, 2011

Kathy King retakes Atlanta with a splendid body of new work including a variety of functional forms and a delicious installation of wall pieces. Kathy's work is playful, irreverent, thoughtful, and personal. Her surfaces are decorated using the sgraffito technique for an effect reminiscent of color linocuts.

More About Kathy King Solo 2011

Kathy King creates functional and decorative pottery, ceramic wall pieces, and ceramic and mixed media installations. Her work is intensely personal, reflecting her frustrations, relationships, and experiences with a healthy dose of comic book, tattoo, science fiction, and other pop culture references. Her exquisite sense of humor shines through with irony, satire and sarcasm. She frequently examines our culture's view of women and their roles and lives.

The functional art in the show includes a good variety of plates, platters, and trays. A dozen mugs and some bowls complete the tableware portion of the show. Also included are a series of eye glass holders...yes...brilliant, true genius, we agree. Kathy also sent along a collection of freakishly cute salt and pepper shakers to spice up your dinnertime.

A previous Atlanta resident, Kathy has returned home to Boston where she currently teaches at Office for the Arts at Harvard. She has also taught at Rhode Island School of Design, University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth, School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, University of Florida, Connecticut College, Harvard/Radcliffe, and Georgia State University; as well as teaching workshops, well, pretty much everywhere.

MudFire loves Kathy King and we are thrilled to have her work in the gallery this summer, and even more excited for her visit.
