  • The traditional image of a femme fatale is one of a seductress.  This thought, however, was not my intended goal.  I wanted to emphasize the strength that is at the core of the femme fatale... the stature combined with a certain amount of grace and elegance.  The model I chose for Maul is the epitome of these characteristics. Her strength stands on its own while the additions of the feathers adds a certain degree of softness around the edges.

    Kate Zambrano explores the human condition though visual stimulation.  Often coupling the standard idealization of beauty with a deep, haunting melancholy, she uses monochromatic and subtle colors in her paintings to create a genuine and simplified journey into individuality.  She works with different mediums and techniques as well as incorporating texture and drips to create an unsettling concept of what is attractive.  

    Her work is made to bring up the emotions, ideas, and opinions of the viewer.  It forces self-exploration and internal dialogue.  She leads the viewer to reflect on him or herself. 

    Kate is an American painter hailing from across the United States.  She grew up, with her sketchbook in hand, having a fervent desire to recreate the things she found beautiful. Self-taught and ambitious, she works night and day on her passion for art with a temporary head space in her studio.
