Through free association, Katherine Kahuric shows how freely
associated our culture is indeed. Technically brillant,
Kahuric combines photo-like images to create a kind of collage
of images that may be encountered anywhere in just a day
in the life of a modern human being. Besides this, what
connects these random images?
Could be anything. In one work (below), the theme is the
name "Rogers" — Kenny Rogers, Mister Rogers,
Roy Rogers. Kahuric suggests that we look for patterns and
connections within the confusion of our surroundings. Kahuric
seems to take great amusement in this, and it's contagious.
Who and what do you recognize in her paintings? At first
you see the apparent superficial effect — intricate,
colorful chaos. But beyond that, what?
