Kathryn Macnaughton

Erotica // Thursday, November 03, 2011
'Combining drawing with collage in a hue of light pastel shades, softening any ‘filthy rautten’  pornographic material, Macnaughton creates random associations that some of us might think is fictional mess, but some will see subliminal messages, suggestive imagery of an interpretation of  the real. Asides from the women, shapes are prominent, patterns may be used to fill space, add  game or are intentionally drawing you towards something, an idea or relationship.'
