Meet Kate deLigne

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kate deLigne.

Kate, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I fell in love with photography when I was given a Barbie camera for my fifth birthday. As a child, I was so enamored with art that I slept with children’s books about famous artists under my pillow at night.

In high school, I took photography classes, and during the summer I attended Art Center’s photography program in Pasadena. I went to college at California Institute of the Arts and graduated in 2014 with BFA.

At CalArts, I was given the freedom to explore various art forms. This opportunity empowered me to express my creativity by expanding the boundaries of photography and begin my path of combining photography and sculpture.

Has it been a smooth road?
I had early success in my career. This was a good thing but also hard for me to keep the momentum going. Expanding gallery representation is a challenge.

Contemporary institutions and museums have small photography collections if any at all. This is frustrating, but it doesn’t detour me from continuing to push forward by expanding the borders of standard photography.

I think photography as a fine art medium is still struggling for recognition.

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I am a contemporary artist that does a combination of photography and sculpture. I am most known for my photograph “Integrated.”

I primarily work with reflective materials to create multiple perspectives in my photographs and sculptures. I am greatly influenced by the ever-changing beauty and power of nature in partnership with my respect for the technological world we live in today.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
The landscape of Los Angles inspires me as an artist. The LA art scene is quickly becoming more and more prominent in the art world. I am excited by the changes taking place downtown.

Galleries, artist’s spaces, and new museums are opening. It is an exciting time to be an artist in LA. I live and work in the Arts District downtown, and there is no other place I’d rather be.
