ART THAT’S INSPIRING | kate shaw, painter

Art that's inspiring - Kate Shaw, painter

These abstract works by painter Kate Shaw are something that really struck me this week. The mix of abstraction with natural landscapes is something that is truly fascinating. I really wouldn’t mine taking a long stroll through one of these magical wonderlands some day. If only. The color palettes this lady uses are to die for; I could fill up a year worth of color studies from these puppies.

“My practice re-interprets notions of what constitutes landscape painting, both within an art historical context and a contemporary social context. The paintings deal with the tensions and dichotomies in both 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. The intention is to reflect upon the contradiction between our inherent connection to the natural world and continual distancing from it.”

—Kate Shaw
