Lost and Found: Over the past few years Kay has been working on various found surfaces. She finds these surfaces to be a puzzle that must be solved both visually and conceptually. Also, the found imagery adds a layer of chance to the finished work as well as a sense of collaboration, either with persons unknown or her father. In this show at Ironton she will be showing three bodies of work.

Collection Amusette, the first body of work, is a series of paintings on wood with imagery based on popular culture.

The Victorian Drawing Series, the second body of work, consists of painted imagery on found Victorian prints. The paintings have a fairy tale quality with imagery of spiders, birds and anatomical symbols.

The third body of work, the Dad/Daughter Drawings, are a collaborative series with her father. Her father tends to draw very masculine things, such as tanks, soldiers, etc, while Kay works with more stereotypically female images.
