Kate Gonda's conceptual sculptural practice blends minimal forms and materials with everyday objects and motifs to address societal issues and human vulnerabilities. Her work incorporates physical tension, repetition of basic shapes, home decor, and the suggestion of game or movement. By activating tenuous relationships to the body and space the artist plays on the idea of restriction and the guise of conditional systems. This is also often implicated by unattainable offerings or feigned moments of indulgence. The resulting sculptures visually oscillate between satirical and sincere with a touch of absurdity. Gonda received a BFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and lives and works in Denver, Colorado.
