Sweet Phobia

about Katherine Dey

Inspiration knows no limits. Some creations sometimes may upset or simply caress our eyes and the idea of beauty and pleasant gained through our own experiences. Phobia is one of these experiences. As pain or happiness. What matters, in the end, it’s that they are good.

“I am inspired by a lot of things. I love that strange feeling I get when something looks real but it isn’t. Or when a cake doesn’t look particularly appetizing but it is a cake and it tastes delicious. I like to make people feel two conflicting things at once. The subjects I choose are things that have interested me forever, be it anatomy, mushrooms, or portraiture. I love portraiture. Making a portrait of someone helps me to really see them. I love the details.

“The reaction is usually a strong one. Some people are excited about them, some people are a little disgusted. I like to make people feel two conflicting things at once, no matter how disgusted some people may be, in the end no one has refused to eat the cake.

Katherine Dey is a painter, sculptor and illustrator from Rochester, NY.
