My square framed works are about mnemonics, visual mind mapping in an urban environment. I try to encourage the viewer to build up a visual diary of an imaginary day, hour, minute. A familiarity of a distant figure picking their way through a barrage of text and directions in a map like grid.
The long framed pieces are based on the concept of loss and searching. Porcelain is a perfect medium to explore the analogy of the fragility of our existence.
My paintings, drawings and prints explore the same ideas and are part of a series.
Since leaving art college I have produced products alongside other pursuits. I have supplied Liberty, the V&A Shop, Paul Smith and Petersham Nursery as well as other small independent shops. I am always looking for new dynamic outlets.
Kate left art college with a first class hons degree in three dimensional design. She then set up a studio in Old Street where she supplied various shops and galleries within Europe and further afield. In 2001 She completed an MA in Fine Art and has been combining both disciplines ever since. Kate has been awarded residencies in Sydney, Japan and Berlin. She now works from a studio in South West London.
