Kathryn Hernden uses masking techniques when applying paint to canvases. This allows her to achieve the precision necessary to complete these complex geometric shapes and radial patterns. Most of the line work is then embroidered. Using long stitches, Kathryn creates perfectly straight lines that coalesce and diverge throughout the composition. Variations in value are created by the proximity of the threads. The application of traditional craft processes ie. embroidery, to the canvas, a spot usually reserved for painting, challenges the conventional notions of what qualifies as art and what qualifies as craft.
