Kathy Moss & Tony Foster
Creating her own gesso and paint bodies from Renaissance recipes, Kathy Moss depicts botanicals as mysterious archetypes in her work. Keenly aware of the suggestiveness and psychological meaning attached to flowers, they address issues of power, solipsism and hierarchies.
The featured paintings were done as part of the Searching for a Bigger Subject exhibition, which compared the world’s two greatest landscape icons – Mount Everest and the Grand Canyon. The resulting works are rooted in specific time and place and often contain personal diaries, narratives, symbolic souvenirs, clues and references to its biology, geology, history and culture.
