Kate Knox's New England roots are evident throughout her mixed media work. Colonialism in all of its downfalls, the working waterfront - stoic and scraping, empty dairy barns still standing on pride alone. Taking all these ingredients from yesterdays living, Knox liberates them from their fixed traditions, their superstitions, and spins them into surreal illusions quite capable of anything. Combining historic mediums with contemporary awareness, Knox delves into the pitfalls and possibilities associated with trying to transcend ones personal, political and cultural history.

Knox, who received her BFA in painting and printmaking from the New England College Institute of Art and Design in 2015, summa cum laude, is the 2021 recipient of the Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant. Her mixed media work can be found in many public and private collections and her work has been featured in Art and Cake Magazine, Iru Magazine, The Cafe Review and Ayris magazines.
