2019, watercolour and acrylic collage on paper, 72 x 91cm
Kate’s recent work is abstract collage, using acrylic and watercolour. Each piece seeks to find an energy and balance between weights, colours, and edges both hard and soft. She uses tissues and Japanese papers allowing for the layering of colour so that a sense of depth can be achieved.
