how to disappear
Kat Alyst creates fictional worlds that don’t exist, yet share authentic narratives through oddly familiar glances into the abstract. Color theory in imagery often stems from experiences with synesthesia and dominates the storylines portrayed. Lonesome expressions leave hints of nostalgia and blur messages below their surface. Subjects who stare at viewers, invite them in to briefly live in their world, whereas the ones who look away would rather they not stay too long. Alyst recently wrapped a solo show that explored mental health and vulnerabilities through her self-portrait work and invited audiences to connect within a safe space.
