Nathan Phillips SquareKaitlin is an award winning artist based just outside of Toronto, whose drawings are created by adding multiple layers of coloured pencil on wood. This layering technique builds the colour saturation and vibrancy of each fabric creating a painterly effect. The raw wood panel adds an additional element of organic detail which is unique to each piece. Her drawings investigate the figure and the vacancy of human presence as a purposely arranged garment. By playing with light and shadows, the piled piece of fabric transforms a mundane item into a sculptural entity. The small sample of fabric belongs to something larger, something more, something left unknown; it is a moment captured, never to be ‘that’ again.
