Kate Gottgens: Paintings, 2007–2015 was published to accompany Gottgens' 2015 exhibition Infinite Loop at SMAC Gallery Cape Town.
From the press release:
"A conceptual painter, Gottgens continually interrogates the how and why of representation and the mechanics of image-making. A lover of paradox and ambiguity, she rids her visual narratives of beginnings, endings and anything conclusive, so that multiple exegetical possibilities might eliminate any single definitive reading.
Working from photographic sources, Gottgens transforms them by weaving in fresh scenarios that express her fascination with psychological states, history, stifling bourgeois conventions and the intermingling of the banal and the brutal. An innovator with many purely idiosyncratic styles and techniques at her command, the artist always applies a different approach to the wide variety of themes she tackles."
