Kate Shaw

Kate works with acrylic paint, inks and other mediums. Her landscapes explore the sublime in nature adding to it a sense of toxicity and artificiality. “I am fascinated by the way the movement of the paint mimics something from the natural world such as a lava flow, a landslide, an avalanche” she says in her artist statement. “Within the dried paint pour I look for something that looks like a tree branch, a cliff or a mountain and then cut and collage the pieces. I use airbrush to achieve sky and watery effects and finally resin as a finishing surface.” (Kate Shaw, artist statement)
