2015 Residency: January through March
Kate Stone is a Brooklyn-based artist. She received a BA in Photography from Bard College in 2009 and an MFA in Photography and Related Media from Parsons the New School for Design in 2013. Stone’s work is a response to the way we relate to space and it challenges associations we have with familiar architectural structures. Through repurposing and recontextualizing raw building materials, found objects and photography, Stone seeks new ways of organizing space. Her sculptures, drawings and photographs break space apart and rearrange the pieces to highlight the banal and the over-looked, revealing hidden substructures and questioning established functions of common objects. The work combines the abstract and the everyday in order to redefine them – to sever context and meaning, elevating form, color and material.
