Kate Sammons portrays objects from contemporary domestic life in vivid photorealistic paintings. In her traditional still life works, she uses bright colors to depict luminous flower arrangements set in intricate vases and fruit displayed in translucent bowls. Her more surrealistic compositions feature flowers sprouting from seashells and cupcakes floating above windows. Sammons is also a gifted portraitist. In an extended series of self-portraits, she incorporates items such as digital cameras, clothing, and knick-knacks to reference both her personality and the current culture.
