a new drawing construction by Kate Smith

This year my attention has, unexpectedly, been focused on gasmasks and guns. As a peaceful, slightly wimpy pacifist who has never been in a fight, I’m not sure why I find the overload of violent imagery in the media and online so fascinating.
I tried to change topics, but after several abortive attempts at making happy paintings, I decided to stop questioning my instincts and just draw. This mixed-media installation is the result. (artist's statement)
