Kate Stewart
October 1 - 31, 2010

For this exhibition, Stewart has created a room-filling installation that investigates both real and imagined post-apocalyptic environments. Her installation draws reference from disparate sources: the gardens of Giverny and the overgrown dwellings of Chernobyl. Stewart’s installation includes a sodded floor, plant life, a damask wall pattern, and new paintings on panel that depict abandoned environments and the objects that remain.

Stewart received her MFA from The University of Pennsylvania and a BA from Dickinson College. She has exhibited her work both regionally and internationally, including at P.S. 122, The Painting Center, Pageant Gallery, Pentimenti Gallery, The Tate Modern and Guizhou University in Guiyang, China. Her work was featured in New American Paintings in 2003 and 2008. Stewart received a Fleisher Challenge solo exhibition in 2005 and was a finalist for the PEW Fellowship for the Arts in 2008. She has been an adjunct member of the faculty in the Art Department at West Chester University since 2006. She currently lives and works in Philadelphia.
