I am interested in people’s points of view: mine and others, especially children. Why do people think the way they do? How are we shaped by and also alter our world? I explore found items and multiple images to capture my memory of the environment of interactions and actions in various media.
Making is a form of thinking and I tend to work intuitively, finding juxtapositions and unplanned mixtures without quite knowing where I am headed. Still-visible changes along the way and sometimes accidental bits left over are products of the process and show my changes of thought in the passage of time.
Kate Brogdon was born in Vienna, Austria and grew up across the United States, mainly in Idaho. She has since moved multiple times, drawing images and cultural ideas from each location. This has influenced her interest in how people think and how they develop their unique worldview. This idea is explored by layering photography, paint and found objects to represent ideas of a multifaceted, ultra-colorful world. After completing her degree at the University of Virginia, she has gained a variety of work experiences and continued her own art studies. This led to several awards in shows in Southern California. Currently she works in Kuwait City.
