Cast Resin Vessels
by Kate Rohde, Australia


Design history is the artist’s playground, and she indulges in it with wanton abandon. Kate conjures a neo-Rococo visual cornucopia that overwhelms and inspires with mesmerizing details and magical ombres of saturated color blends.

The artist's work is equal parts reaction to a minimalist childhood environment, and a celebration of the availability of imagery and color in the modern world. Visually evoking the abundance of digital pastiche that saturates commerce and urban life, the work is rendered in synthetic resin after being meticulously hand sculpted in clay, then cast in complex, multi-part molds.
