Kate Klingbeil 'Thick' @ Crush Curatorial
Kate Klingbeil applies acrylic paint like frosting. Her subjects inhabit a Boschian dream of carnal desire. This approach titillates the senses and leaves the viewer with feelings of hunger on multiple levels. 'Thick' continues upon Klingbeil's exploration of the forbidden, the way we communicate with our bodies, and questions female stereotypes in today's world. In Klingbeil's own words, "As a woman, I have been expected to be polite, submissive, and beautiful: but life is messy, so I make the work thick and unapologetic."
'Thick' is on view through March 18th at Crush Curatorial, 526 West 26th Street, New York, NY 10001, www.crush-curatorial.com.
