In her portfolio, K explores the complexities of skin. Skin, both metaphorically and physically, can be considered a protective barrier. Marks on the skin, such as bruises, can signify both pain and identity. Through the use of different materials as a metaphor for skin and the examination of different markings on skin, K communicates the impact of the environment on skin and its significance to the individual.

Ks artistic stance is informed by a desire to create a skin of color that is both beautiful and vital.Ks work is at once a reflection on the boundaries between the individual and the society, and a reminder that a society based on colorblindness is inherently oppressive. Ks work attempts to create a space that is both beautiful and vital.

She also explores the possibility of a skin that can be used to transport the viewer from one location to another.The wall text that accompanies the show, in part, offers a statement that could be considered a declaration of intent. In it, K discusses the ways in which she uses the skin as a tool to create her sculptures. The artist refers to the skin as the skin of choice, the skin that is usually ignored in the first place. This is an important distinction, since in the work of art, the art object is often the most visible, and the act of painting is the most intimate. As such, Ks paintings are important as statements about the act of painting and the relationship between artist and audience. In this respect, they are closely aligned with the work of artists such as Jennifer Bartlett, whose paintings of paintings, objects, and drawings combine the visual and conceptual elements of painting with the tools of social criticism. In this way, they are a reflection on the relationship between the public and the private, the private and the public, the artist and the audience, and the public and the artist. They are also a response to the current economic downturn.

In her portfolio, K explores the complexities of skin. Skin, both metaphorically and physically, can be considered a protective barrier. Marks on the skin, such as bruises, can signify both pain and identity. Through the use of different materials as a metaphor for skin and the examination of different markings on skin, K communicates the impact of the environment on skin and its significance to the individual.In a series of eight large-scale color photographs, K explores the ways in which skin can function as a protective barrier. In one, we see a group of women standing against a bright, white, and somewhat surreal backdrop. The women are all wearing long sleeves and trousers and some are even bare-chested. As they approach the camera, they smile and wave to the camera, only to turn around to look at the lens. In another work, the womens skin is exposed as they walk past a van parked outside. The van is also covered in paint, and the women appear to be taking a walk; the paint covers the van and the womens skin. In another work, K focuses on the way the folds of a womans pants are visible, and the way their edges overlap, creating a space between the pants and the wall. In the last work in the show, the women are walking through a park, and the landscape is covered with a pair of shoes. In the foreground, a tree branches in a puddle. The entire image is covered in mud and mud, and the image evokes the body of nature as a physical barrier. In this work, the individual is forced to become an observer as well as a participant in the environment.Ks work takes on a number of forms. In the series of four photographs, titled Flak, the womens bodies are shown with great clarity and accuracy, but also with a great variety of detail. In one work, the legs of a womans torso are covered in mud and the torso itself is a large, pale-green canvas. The bodies are all black, and the color contrasts sharply with the mud covering the torso. The subject is literally torn apart, and the image seems to be torn from the womans body. The apparent harmony of form and content is disrupted by the fact that the legs of the womans body are also covered in mud and the torso is also a black canvas.

In her portfolio, K explores the complexities of skin. Skin, both metaphorically and physically, can be considered a protective barrier. Marks on the skin, such as bruises, can signify both pain and identity. Through the use of different materials as a metaphor for skin and the examination of different markings on skin, K communicates the impact of the environment on skin and its significance to the individual. K emphasizes the complex, often painful, relationships between people, the relationship between the body and the environment, and the relationship between the skin as a skin barrier and the environment as a barrier. She also explores how skin can be used as a tool of communication between the body and the outside world. In this way, her work speaks to the fact that our environment is shaped by our experiences and that communication can be both intimate and public.Ks body paintings are an intimate body painting, and this intimate quality is what makes them particularly difficult to categorize. Ks body paintings are so much more than paintings. They are not simply body paintings, however, but also landscapes. In Ks landscapes, the sky is a metaphor for the body, and the body is represented as a fragment of the sky. The landscape is not simply a point of view into an external space, however; it is also a metaphor for a body that is both outside and inside. Ks body paintings are both abstract and naturalistic, and this abstraction and naturalism are what make them particularly difficult to categorize. Ks body paintings are both abstract and naturalistic, and this abstraction and naturalism are what make them particularly difficult to categorize.Ks paintings are a powerful body of painting that is simultaneously abstract and naturalistic. She asks the viewer to consider the relationship between the body and the landscape and the body and the landscape as a body. The body is presented as a fragment of the landscape, and the landscape is presented as an abstraction. The body, landscape, and landscape are all metaphors for the body, and are therefore both abstract and naturalistic. The body, landscape, and body are both abstract and naturalistic. The body, landscape, and body are both abstract and naturalistic. In the paintings, K explores the complexities of skin, both metaphorically and physically, and the complexities of skin can be considered a protective barrier.
