untitled murals, 2018 (renderings shown above)
Kate Costello (presented by the IF Foundation)
March 2018 – March 2019
Plummer Park Community Center (7377 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood)
The artist, Kate Costello, is interested in how complex thought and emotion become abstract 2D silhouettes. Her series of hand painted murals are composed of recognized and familiar simplifications of images and iconography that transcend language, ethnography and time. The artist’s intention is to discover the murals as you would a buried treasure or an archeological artifact.
