If you don’t know already, I’m Kate; an artist from London. Back in the early 2010's I had the utter joy of studying Fine Art in the beautiful building that is The Birmingham School of Art (Margaret Street).
During that time I was pushed, shoved and exposed into the (super important) history of Feminist Art Theory by my three brilliant female tutors/artist mentors. I’m still no expert, but so much of what I learnt during that time resonated with me whilst also angering me, fuelling most of my artwork.
Aiming to illustrate the exclusion of women in the history of art and their absence in some texts even today, I quite literally remove the bodies of female figures from my work. My practice has evolved and developed since the degree show days. It’s even stumbled and sometimes fully halted, as practical things like trying to make a living get in the way (boo!).
Keep your eyes peeled as new work will always come. Support is always appreciated, so thanks for stopping by and checking out my work, what ever way you ended up here!
