YES and NO

85.00

“Yes” and “No” are part of Katie Donovan’s series “Solutions (Summarized).”

Donovan is ever curious about who and what we trust. She creates drawings that are meant as an invitation to reconsider what we hold to be real or authentic. Her work often utilizes imagery referential of publications that carry connotations of legitimacy: scientific botanical illustration, natural history illustration, field guides, and illuminated manuscripts. This imagery is paired with text of a much different flavor, such as traumatic narratives or fictitious futuristic musings on 21st century concerns, such as climate change denial and the psychological methods at play within advertisement. The unexpected relationship between imagery rooted in science or history and emotional or illusory text forces the viewer to begin a process of sorting through, and seeing what kind of reconciliation they can make between different kinds of “truths.”
