Guest artist: Kathi Flood

Kathi Flood’s wallworks, installations, and assemblages offer colorful narratives about contemporary urban life.  A self-declared ‘guerrilla sociologist’, her tongue-in-cheek observations are expressed through her visual art, writings, and activism.

She has been included in over 350 exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe, has served as an arts advocate, and has curated and produced visual and aural events.  She has also been active in the spoken word community and has a solo CD of her bombastic stories (New Alliance Records, Rocky Road Peep Show and Paperhangers’ Directory Point-of-Purchase Dreams) and a creative writing textbook (Royal Fireworks Press, Hotwords, A Student’s Guide to Writing Truth).  She was an art educator at secondary and university levels for 30 years, specializing in drawing and murals.

Flood uses etchings, drawings, fibers, text, and gutterwalk findings on antique supports to tell humorous, sentimental, goofy stories that catalogue our responses to urban life. She categorizes and comments on local issues such as traffic patterns, over-development, qualities that define a city, and the architecture of Los Angeles. She uses sociology and psychology to consider contemporary issues such as telemarketers, surveillance, the complexity of modern life, relationships and communication, consumerism and excessive materialism, fashion, the evolution of media, politics, adjusting to the Electronic Age, the quality of our medical care, psychotherapy, the development of language, school cultures, and art marketing in Los Angeles.
