Kathryn Polk is a printmaker based in Tucson, Arizona where she is the co-owner of L VIS Press, a lithography print studio. However she travels often to do printmaking workshops at different universities and presses around the country. Polk’s artworks use a language of symbols unique and personal to herself. However, upon inspection, many of these symbols are translatable and relatable. Some of her common symbols repeated throughout her oeuvre are the infinity sign, the tree stump, flames, cacti, and helicopter seeds. Her works hold a beautiful sense of motion in their storytelling as Polk allows her subjects to break away from strict naturism in order to convey an allegory. See her fantastic lithographs below!
