Kate Stewart
March 2 - April 1, 2012

In keeping with Kate Stewart’s interest in post-apocalyptic life, her latest exhibition at Vox is called Provisions, which elaborates on her imaginings of future nomadic cultures. Stewart has created a new body of paintings, which describe a world containing blankets, branches, roadside memorials, and other discarded materials that have become re-purposed and revalued. In this case, Stewart re-imagines the post-apocalyptic world as not so far in the future by responding to the uncertainty and urgency of current times as evidenced in the OCCUPY movement.

Kate Stewart received her MFA from The University of Pennsylvania in 2003 and a BA from Dickinson College in 1998. She works in a variety of media including painting, drawing, collage and installation. She exhibits her work locally and internationally and has been featured in the publications New American Paintings and Glasschord Magazine. She was a finalist for the PEW grant for artists in 2008 and was awarded a Fleisher Challenge exhibition in 2005. She is currently Assistant Professor in the Art Department at West Chester University.
