Artist Kate Shaw has found a niche with her immaculate paintings that straddle the liminal between landscape and abstraction. Using a mixture of resin, powder, glitter and acrylic paint Shaw takes us into a beautiful world of reflections.
“My practice aims to convey ideas of nature, alchemy and cycles of creation/destruction. The paintings and video works deal with the tensions and dichotomies in the depiction of the natural world and our relationship to it. I am concurrently exploring the sublime in nature whilst imbuing a sense of toxicity and artificiality in this depiction. My intention is to reflect upon the contradiction between our inherent connection to the natural world and continual distancing from it.”
These paintings will be on display at Mirus Gallery in San Francisco in February of 2016.
