The Top 100 (13/49)


Kate makes work pulling on themes of renaissance, rave, light and sacred space, to create an environment in which the only thing left to worship is the act of ascension itself.  

Since 2018 she has used structures reminiscent of the altar to discuss the internal archive one experiences when faced with such a shape. Recently, she’s moved into multi-sensory experience as a means to address her concern with the potential to be passive in the age of information overload. Kate uses sight-specific installation and UV reactive materials to manipulate the display of her paintings and create a confrontation with the viewer.  


Education: Central Saint Martins, The Florence Academy of Art and City of Guilds of London Art School.

Solo Exhibition: THE TABERNACLE at TJ Boulting, June 2021.
Two-person show FUGUE with Robert Cooper at The Tub.
