The Biography & Work of:
Christy Kane
Location: New Orleans, LA
Web: christykane.com/main.html
Bio: Author, photographer, artist, musician and clothing designer Christy Kane has just added moviemaker to the list. Long obsessed with the whimsical side of traditional fairy tales, Kane focuses her creative energies on the wacky and wonderful world of her three muses, Lily, Callililly and Polly. A dynamic and ambitious artist, Kane keeps the girls busy. Lilly, Callalilly and Polly are handmade dolls that now pinion Kane's art, but it wasn't always the case. Always influenced by the unusual, Kane, who graduated from New York University Tisch School of Art with a degree in Fine Art Photography in 1996, hand made props, costumes, and used various specialty photographic film products to make the subjects in her photographs appear otherworldly. During this same period she started to write stories and poetry and would use her photos to illustrate them. But something was missing. As Kane's stories evolved, it became increasingly obvious that her human subjects were not rendering the feel she wanted to convey. She wanted to create a more imaginative world while still using photography as her medium, so she began to make dolls. Lily was the first, followed by Callalilly, and then Polly. After photographing the dolls and thinking about their relationship to each other, she realized that they were indeed Sisters and that is how she discovered the missing link. Thus the Sisters Kane were born. Kane has been handcrafting and photographing her dolls ever since, and has exhibited her photographs, and original one-of-a-kind dolls at numerous galleries in New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Austin, Texas. Her first book about the dolls, Tales of the Sisters Kane, was published in October of 2006 by Baby Tattoo Publications.
