Kate Domina: ‘The Essence of Adolescence’

“Children are unapologetically animals” to Toronto figurative painter Kate Domina, whose works explore the world of  youth.  She says her critical theory fixation (including Freud and Jung) weaves its way into her work, evolving her portraits into studies of human frailty, and often, neurosis.

My subjects are not based on specific people but are composites . . . . The result is a layered study of youth that captures the essence of adolescence; fear, naivety, omnipotence and paranoia all seep their way into the faces and environments of my subjects. – Kate Domina, represented by Canvas Gallery, Toronto.
