Kate Fetherston: Artist and Poet

Poetry and art have their own lives; my obsessions show up here, but, if the work has merit, it is not “about” whatever vision or impetus I thought I had. My obsessions are revelation and concealment, flow and the awestruck held breath. I’m interested in the intimate line between seeing and feeling, between thinking and the sensed but largely unknowable life of the body.

This current artwork, for the most part, focuses on reinterpreting the natural world in an intimate and spacious moment. Working with a variety of media, experimentation and willingness to go into the unknown are primary.

The current poems are less about a subject than riffs on that electric current between love and philosophy. I will let you decide what they're about.
