Biography

Eske Kath’s large-scale acrylic and gesso paintings and mixed-media sculptures depict catastrophic events and point to the frailty of the human civilization. Invoking humankind through the symbol of the house—a stand-in for the urge toward permanence and security in the face of unstable environments—Kath portrays surreal, brightly colored landscapes in which homes are tossed about by the forces of nature. Kath has also produced sculptures in which light radiates from within wood and plastic houses, as well as collaborative animated visuals and stage designs for the Danish singer Oh Land.
