Daily Sublimations

Katie Budden's avatar Katie Budden

While working on these paintings, the aim was to capture the complexities of being a working mother. I focused on inner conflict and the choices faced on a daily basis through personal inspiration and process. The sense of daily struggle and inner turmoil, as well as the repercussions of those decisions, was the motivation for my work. The forms used are evocative of different aspects of a working mother’s life, typically originating from interiors of homesteads and personal memories. The work begins with a solid structure and identifiable form. The structures in the paintings are obscured through an additive process of layering pigment. The buildup creates a new surface while allowing the original structure to peek through as a supporting element. The forms slowly dissolve as I begin mimicking, with the use of my media, the forces of these two worlds competing for attention. The never-ending dichotomy of these two worlds is represented in the fluctuation of the surface.
