Kati Elm, ‘RECESSION PROOF’, 2013, Artspace Warehouse

Kati Elm is inspired by pictures and text materials from past eras such as historical papers and fabrics. Kati playfully, and with carefree abandon, creates her artworks by using different sources and the combinations of tradition and the current zeitgeist. The result of these components is a colorful, striking, timeless imagery which is designed to provide the viewer stimulation, expansion, as well as intense amusement. Today, the artist operates her own workshop and atelier. Kati Elm creates her unique artworks by first cutting the wood in her workshop in Berlin, Germany. An individual and one-of-a-kind personality and soul is crafted into each artwork with the application of imagery and acrylic paint. This artwork is ready to hang. The 1.5" depth gives it a sculptural effect. It can also be placed on a shelf, desk, counter or table.
