+ Secluded and Convenient

"Secluded & Convenient" is a visual story about past, present and future in a scarce undeveloped area in Carlsbad, North County San Diego. The inspiration comes from hidden gems in plain sight. Artist Kate Joiner draws upon an area physically close to her, as she is mesmerized by the objects and structures once cherished. Her work depicts a wide range of snapshots, tucked away for safety, including an abandoned equestrian farm, a vacant lot owned by Walmart, migrant workers who toil 7 days a week, and the threat of California fires in protected brush. What some see as discarded, she imagines a narrative that came from the remnants and ponders what will become of the land's future development.

 [Her] “work exhibits a definite mood and tone. Each piece feels like it’s a part of a story. Each image could serve as a warm reminder of memories long since faded.” (Gregory Siragusa, Co-Owner, Gallery at Marina Square,)

Often working with an intuitive style and randomness, Joiner uses a variety of techniques in her process. It can start with thrown paint, incorporated digital media and structured composition, as the images are tuned and developed, only be to picked apart, erased and left behind.      

Kate Joiner’s work “"She’s Gone in the Day” captures elements of David Hockney and T.C. Cannon and brings them together creating a suburban landscape full of rich color. Joiner’s complex composition forces the viewer to question a sense of place and time. The cantilevered roof separates the composition into distinct areas of light and dark- perhaps day and night, hope and failure. Her use of a vibrant blue in the sky suggests daytime, yet her darker tones and shadows in the bottom of the composition suggests it is night, while at the same time evoking a somber mood. (Christine O’Donnell, Owner, Beacon Gallery, Boston)

Joiner’s work "Little Boxes on the Hillside” is reminiscent of some of Cezanne’s later landscapes, yet the distinct gridlines in the sky again recall that of David Hockney. Joiner conveys a sense of a hierarchy in her landscape, and by doing so, she draws the eye in and centers the viewer’s focus. Her use of color suggests an arid landscape, and alludes to a scene at sunset without blatantly doing so. (Christine O’Donnell, Owner, Beacon Gallery, Boston)

    Mixed Media on Birch Board

    "Out to Pasture" depicts the poles the horse would use for jumping. These particular poles have been sitting here for a few years and my goal was to put a happy ending as they are placed out to pasture.

    "Out to Pasture" uses a variety of mixed media, including digital media printed on fabric, acrylic paint and mediums and adhered to a 1/2" birch board.
