Decay and dereliction in overlooked and insignificant corners are often underlying  inspirations for Kate’s art, particularly as found in the built environment. She is attracted by  neglected structures where the process of decay and erosion has left its mark, leaving  random textures and tones that are often translated into the themes for her work. She finds  abstract art compelling because the outcome is always unpredictable since it involves both  the conscious and subconscious. The process of making a picture is a continuous  development influenced both by the artist and by the painting itself as it evolves into a new  and unique work. Kate’s pictures are often multi-layered, sometimes built on a foundation of  gesso and collage, laying down colours which are often almost obscured as the picture  develops. Whilst recognising that every abstract painting stems from some memory or  experience, Kate cites Patrick Heron who posits that “The picture is not the vehicle of  meaning, the picture is the meaning.” His belief was that the picture is not dependent on  external references for its meaning. If and how the viewer is able to connect with any piece  of art and the response provoked will depend on the individual observer. The interaction of  colour, form and texture will affect everyone differently, filtered by the kaleidoscope of  personal experience. Kate invites you to share her thoughts and experiences obliquely  through her pictures and hopefully to find a sense of unique personal visual discovery.
