Kate MacDowell’s hand-made porcelain works are a serial provocation to environment threats and their direct consequences; Her collections travelled all around the world from Japan to Europe, but they caught my eyes scrolling my Instagram’s board. She is used to touch a lot of themes in her pale white sculptures, for example, her 2015 “Win, place, show” piece stands as stark commentary on hunting for sport, as opposed to hunting for sustenance.

The Portland-based artist continues to construct amazing combinations of human shapes and wild-life elements in her creations; she often describes her choice of material for its brightness and its ghostly qualities; but beyond aesthetics, she is used to choose these materials because of their strength and ability to celebrate fine textures, underlighting both the precariousness and fragility of humanity in a decadent ecosystem, but being at the same time, one of the few material that can last for countless years.

The visual collision between the purity of the white veil which embraces the works and the cruelty of the subjects shown is one of her art’s topics, in fact it is easy to see how she loves to highlight this abysmal contrast.
