Kate Richardson – Featured Artist June 2021
Kate, originally from Guildford, came to Cornwall 15 years ago and quickly fell in love with it. The county has a long history of art and the abundance of galleries in the area sparked a dormant creative desire, so she embarked on building a body of work in her own unique style.
Working with oil and mixed media, Kate’s abstract collection is a unique expression of freedom bound by minimal use of colour, yet boundless in its imagination. Each original piece is uncompromised and unlimited. Complex, textured shades support geometry without borders. Shapes and colours emerge and fade with gentle subtlety, inspired by the infinite subconscious mind and providing compelling drama. Her work carries a strong emotional element and she describes the painting as simultaneously cathartic, meditative, explorative and exhilarating.
