Kate Breakey: Golden Hour

Catherine Couturier Gallery is delighted to present the work of gallery artist Kate Breakey, in a solo exhibition entitled Golden Hour. The artist will be in attendance at the opening reception on Saturday, May 19th from 5-7 p.m.

Kate Breakey (B. 1957 Adelaide, South Australia) is internationally known for her large-scale, richly hand-colored photographs of luminous portraits of birds, flowers, animals, and insects. A few years ago, she became interested in the science of gold, especially astrophysics which inspired the beginning of her new series, Golden Stardust. Struck by the beauty, brightness, and the depth of Orotones, a historical photographic process which was first used in the early 20th century by, among others, Pillsbury and Edward Curtis. This series of work is a contemporary version of an Orotone in which an image is digitally printed on UV Art glass and adorned with 24kt gold leaf applied to the back. Upon viewing, this technique gives this eclectic body of work including classical still life, landscapes, nudes, the moon, and other biological subjects an ethereal and enchanting glow that commands the viewer’s attention. For Breakey, the gold leaf unifies it all, making each image ’precious’ and preserves the memory, beauty, fragility and simplicity of her daily surroundings.

The exhibition will be on display from May 19 - August 4, 2018.

Please enjoy selections from over 70 peices which will be on display.
