PK's AvatarPK Donson (1954 Anniston, AL)

PK’s work investigates the pixels by exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society. She creates intense personal moments masterly created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round.

PK’s whimsical photos directly respond to the surrounding environment and she uses everyday experiences as a starting point. Often these framed instances would go unnoticed in their original context.

By applying abstraction, she approaches a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way and likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes emotional. The results are deconstructed to the extent the meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.

Her works are saturated with obviousness, mental inertia, cliches and bad jokes. They question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic
appearance of an image, with a conceptual approach. PK makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky. At other times, they seem typical by-products of American super abundance and marketing.

PK currently lives and works in Davidson, NC.
