Originally from San Francisco, Miami-based multidisciplinary artist, KT, is best known for their analog collages. Their work has been featured in galleries across South Florida, including the Mize Gallery in St. Petersburg, and a pop-up exhibit at the Superchief Gallery during Miami Art Basel in 2018.
Inspired by gender politics, civil unrest, social injustice, historical and current events, KT's collages juxtapose mid century American imagery against minimal motifs. As both process and product, collaging invites the viewer to reckon with undisguised fragmentation and objectification. Aware of the ubiquitous presence of capitalism, KT's compositions challenge notions behind desirability and fungibility. They expose parts to highlight the whole, demonstrating the power behind transformation (i.e., transness and self-determination). KT’s work draws connections between settler-colonial capitalism and forms of supremacy, such as white supremacy, patriarchy (male supremacy), and human supremacy (ecocide).
KT's practice also branches out into zine making, a format that allows for the dissemination of text and image with precision. Unlike traditional white cube exhibits, zine fairs provide alternative, democratic exhibition spaces for direct conversation with an audience and the print community. Recent fairs include Yummy Zine Fair organized by Exile Books in Miami, Florida along with SPF in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
