About The Artwork

This work came out of an investigation into the power of language and the usage of words. African American slaves were called "boy" to indicate their being considered less than full men by slave owners. The supreme Court ruled that " Although it is true that the disputed word [boy] will not always be evidence of racial animus, it does not follow that the term, standing alone, is always benign.

Kate Brockman was born in England and moved, with her family, to the United States in 1979. She took her first course in figure sculpture while an undergrad at West Chester University, Pa. Formal art study began at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in1986. This time solidified her love of figurative work and specifically the nude. Kate continued study with Evangelos Frudakis and Myron Barnstone. She has had solo exhibits in the Philadelphia area and the James A. Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA, as well as numerous group shows in the tri-state area. Her work work is in many national and international private collections and the permanent collections of the Fellowship of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Harriet Tubman Museum, Cape May, New Jersey and the Culver Girls Academy, Indiana. Brockman's work has earned many awards including a Cresson Memorial Traveling Scholarship from PAFA, two grants from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, the Alex J. Ettl Grant from the National Sculpture Society (NSS) in 2011, the Michael Gressel Memorial Award from the Hudson Valley Art Association in 2017.Most recently her portrait Fearless in Fear: A Young Harriet Tubman was awarded the Gold Medal in the NSS 88th Annual Awards Exhibition. Kate learned and fell in love with the bronze casting process and realized that foundry was going to be an integral element in her work. So, upon graduating from PAFA, she built her own bronze casting foundry and continues to cast all her own work, maintaining control over the complicated process of reproduction from clay to bronze. In 2005 and the birth of her daughter, Kate put her sculpture career aside to embrace motherhood and consequently homeschooling. Now she is back to consistent studio time and is excited to find her place in the new and different sculpture world she is re-emerging into. Kate is a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society (FNSS) and served on the board from 2020-2023. She is currently on the sculpture faculty at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Her studio and foundry are in Philadelphia.
