Brickworks Gallery founder, Laura Adams and Kate Breakey recently spoke to Lois Reitzes of WABE’s arts program, “City Lights,” on the impact and reach of Breakey’s latest work.

“Kate’s work is very emotional and ethereal and it speaks to issues and feelings that are universal,” Adams said in a radio interview with Public Broadcasting Atlanta’s “City Lights” program. “This current body of work is about Kate’s life and love lost and I believe that everybody has experienced that in some form or fashion in their life. Kate’s work has a wonderful connection to her viewers...Everybody can relate to it.”

Breakey also commented on the event, focusing in on her inspiration and methodology, as well as the meaning of her latest collection, “Ghosts and Other Visions.” “The images are metaphors. They’re representations of the idea that love is an entity or an aberration or a dream,” Breakey said in reference to the poem that helped inspired the collection. “[Love] is elusive, ephemeral and it can evaporate or disappear, but that if you look, you can see it everywhere.”
