Kate Land

At one of my exhibitions, I overheard a spectator call my paintings wonky. It was hurtful, but it helped me understand why I’ve been drawn to painting lonely, imperfect storefronts and facades. As someone with facial differences, I am always thinking about how I face the world. As an artist, I like to represent my own conflicted feelings while celebrating beauty that is not found in a shiny skyscraper, but rather humble family businesses - not often beautiful, but always essential.
