Kathleen Waggoner

Kathleen Waggoner's emotionally charged imagery explores the physical manifestations of emotion and human behavior. Myths, identity and stereotypes are the issues that continue to define and support her work.

The current series of seductively tactile life-size figures and heads are richly embellished with narrative fragments and intricate carving, a reflection of the artist's intense interest in and respect for native cultures, indigenous art forms and design. These interests have collated and evolved into a single conceptual core for the series, the honoring and elevation of third-world women.
