Kathryn Mecca — Paintings capturing the myth and magic of everyday moments

Emma Firth, We Present, 4 October 2023
Kathryn Mecca’s paintings are “purposely vague”—they offer zoomed-in looks at body parts and the clothes they adorn. For her, she’s always seen more clearly when less information is offered, and in turn she offers us scenes that are universal, for us to read into ourselves. Emma Firth speaks to her about the everyday voyeurism that inspires her work, and asks how she manages to find the myth and magic of everyday moments.
