The Complexities of Interpersonal Relationships

Kate Nelson, a sculptor from Austin, Texas, considers herself a “lucky girl” indeed. “I figured out what I wanted to do with my life and got to it,” she simply says. Having obtained an MFA from Texas Women’s University in 2005, she has been, of late, inventively fashioning ceramic and clay into small, almost abstract, identities that try to communicate with each other as they are held back by mostly invisible – sometimes visible – forces.

two objects at equal distance acting as if they care


do you wanna hear about the deal and make it yours


don’t you prefer a bitter taste to a bitter site


my my my we’re treating each other just like strangers


you say the world has come between us


you can speak your mind just not on my time


our dark secrets i’ll keep well


we’re all talking to keep the conversation alive


where does it stop, where do you dare me to draw the line


why o why o why are we so in denial when you know we are not happy here
