Enjoy a print of this bloody deconstruction of kitsch art. Reproduced from a high-quality photograph, this print maintains the detail and visceral power of the original piece. It depicts a torn and mangled painted canvas that has been splattered with red paint. This photograph was created in the premiere episode of second season of Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. The artist was tasked with elevating a piece of kitsch art into "high art." The artist evokes a sense of violence and awe through the use of a desecrated painted canvas. Her use of sharp angles jutting outward conveys an internalized aggression. Its macabre presentation of a once kitsch painting elevates this piece to a definite conversation starter. Kathryn lives in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated from Yale University. At Yale, Kathryn developed her style and voice into something truly unique, beautiful and organic. She is known as "the photographer who builds and photographs things concerning the body/human condition and the medical world." She's smart, focused and she has "always ripped through or torn apart anything standing in [her] way to make art."
