For Kate Breakey, the artistic process is an act of investigation - a passionate attempt to establish an understanding of the natural world - a version that incorporates both intellectual and emotional comprehensions which are sometimes incompatible, and distill them into a visual language of images where they can be contemplated. Making images of these things is a natural extension of being fascinated, touched, or intrigued by them. This process of seeing, and recording transforms me. It is how I express wonder and love, a form of dedication. It is also a record of my life and my desire to connect myself to all other things, the acknowledgement of a search for explanation, for meaning and significances, a primal longing to grasp things which are unknowable. I begin with a silver photographic image, evidence. Then I paint on this in many transparent layers of oil paint and pencil. If I am lucky the media combine, and become enmeshed, a curious union of what was real with my own painterly exaggerations and embellishments, so I can show how beautiful it all is- the light, the form, the texture and color, because I am a sensualist and this is my deepest pleasure, my lovely addiction.
