Kate Tupper

Nakusp, BC

Years working in trades and heavy construction as a welder have provided Kate firsthand expertise in the traditional use of materials. A lifelong love of craft, nature, and ecology
influence her method, texture, and composition. Creating stunning public artworks balances her involvement in other multi-media initiatives and more intricate work – part of the ongoing Dynamis project.

Her skill and creative vision are on full display here. It is a spectacular work, bursting gloriously in an explosion of muted colour and form. Lovely flourishes are found everywhere. The delicacy, fragility, and exquisite detail of Carbon Key is absolutely marvellous.
