Being an artist is like going to war and coming back a completely different person” - Jack White
No longer just a fashion icon, supermodel enfant terrible Kate Moss has transcended into a symbol of the contemporary pop lexicon, equal parts girl next-door and rock n’ roll goddess. It’s no wonder that she has become a reoccurring subject for most of the top artists of her era. Damien Hirst, Banksy, Chuck Close, Mark Quinn, Lucian Freud, and Alex Katz have all incorporated her likeness into their work. Most recently, artist Kate Garner has returned to her original images of Kate.
Gallery 618 is bringing Kate Garner’s controversial photographs of Kate Moss to the United States and into a new light with Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, See No Evil. Garner created 20 unique canvas works showing three scenes from the now legendary photo shoot that helped turn an unknown 16 year old into a cultural icon.
Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, See No Evil runs from May 17 to 31, 2013.
