Rachel Adams:
”Kate MacNeil intertwines a variety of media in order to examine themes including trauma, memory and loss. Through her performative mark-making, Kate imprints onto surfaces, using her body in ways to speak through the messiness of life. While recently working through confronting the silencing of traumatic events and mental health issues, Kate’s work is a powerful reminder that abstraction is an artistic tool that can speak volumes."

Carlos Llobet and Kate MacNeil at WNYBAC

“Maybe there’s a scientific name for it—though probably not—the phenomenon—as notably in the initial intensity stages of being in love—of not being able to clearly recollect—despite all efforts and exertions—the face of the absent beloved. “Clearly” being the operative word. Not by any means a total failure to recall what she or he looks like. Not that you might not recognize him or her on subsequent actual encounter. Nothing like that. But instead of an integral and precise mental image of the loved one, a patchwork of partial images, incomplete, and unsatisfactory. But not just a loved one in a romantic sense, but anyone deeply beloved. Or anything similarly cared for, or cared about. A place, a time, a moment. Artists Carlos Llobet and Kate MacNeil explore the phenomenon in an exhibit currently at the Western New York Book Arts Center. Entitled I’m trying to remember, pero nunca olvidaré.” - Jack Foran
