Kate Kelton is creating Art

Headdresses and crowns deify Kate Kelton’s subjects. She paints portraits cloaked in the garb of statues Ladislav Šaloun sculpted onto the train station that her great-grandfather, Josef Fanta, designed for Prague in 1901 - 1909. Apotheosis through a reclaimed, reapplied Art Nouveau. Sampling her own lineage, she transforms a historical body of work, itself a thing of lasting beauty; exchanging granite for graphite, plaster for paint.

Granite is exchanged for graphite, plaster for paint. Ancient and distant godlike beings, surveying a dying empire, trade places with the fresh blood of her chosen subjects. The work presents a tactility against the digitized space, and represents a taking, an acquisition of power back from the tastemakers. Here, the mantle of the artist is above brand influencer, above internet commentator, above mere marketability. In their gaze is a warning, “Art is immortal. Come for me, why don’t you?”
