MacDonald, Kate (K8L35)

About the artist
Kate MacDonald is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores themes of redemption, metamorphosis and grace. Described as “haunting” and “visually captivating,” her work has been exhibited internationally and her paintings have been featured in Wired and GQ magazines. She has been recognized as a Top Ten artist by the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art in 2012 and again in 2017. Kate’s collaboration with Les Sears as K8L35 began in 2013. K8L35 endeavor to elevate the status of objects by creating meaning outside of original context. Through the use of materials such as duct tape and resin, and repurposing everyday objects such as crackers and guest soap, Kate MacDonald and Les Sears double down on their belief that no symbol should be sacred, no object commonplace. Kate is represented by the Robert Lynds Gallery in Vancouver and by the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art , where she was selected as one of Ten Artists to Watch in 2012 and again in 2017.
