About kate nelson

I explore the complexities of interpersonal relationships; specifically the spatial and supposed interaction between two or more persons caught in a single moment of time. Through the process of breaking down and deconstructing the figure into smaller more intimate aspects of a bodies posture the emphasis is redirected to the non descript area between, creating a permanent shifting state of tension.
