Kate Stewart: Theta Resonance
May 17 - June 8, 2019
Kate Stewart's works reflect the artist’s interest in meditation and diverse art practices, artists and materials. The title Theta Resonance refers to the theta state of the brain during meditation, REM sleep and hypnosis. Stewart draws parallels between her studio work and her meditation practice by describing synesthetic responses to thoughts and sounds through color, light, and space.
