The Beauty of Kate ZambranoIllustration // Friday, 18 Jul 2014
A consistently wide-eyed wanderer, Kate Zambrano explores the human condition though visual stimulation. Often coupling the standard idealization of beauty with a deep, haunting melancholy, she uses monochromatic and subtle colors in her paintings to create a genuine and simplified journey into individuality. She works with different mediums and techniques as well as incorporating texture and drips to create an unsettling concept of what is attractive.
Her work is made to bring up the emotions, ideas, and opinions of the viewer. It forces self-exploration and internal dialogue. She starts most paintings with the eyes, the fingerprint of the soul, which leads the viewer to reflect on him or herself.
Kate is an American painter hailing from across the United States. She grew up, with her sketchbook in hand, having a fervent desire to recreate the things she found beautiful. Self-taught and ambitious, she works night and day on her passion for art with a temporary head space in the Bay Area.
