I experience the physical act of painting like a conversation to express the silent voice that I cannot communicate in any other way, when the conversation finishes, the painting becomes something separate and can appear to be a window into another world, which then reflects the experience of the viewer.

Kate’s work explores her experiences, memories, her personal joy in nature, and music, through gesture and paint- there is rarely a plan and each piece takes on and communicates its own meaning and resonance, seeking to connect from there.
I know I have finished something when the conversation stops, and when the words start flooding in for a title

‘Kate Scott’s recent paintings ring with freshness. Carefree mark making and a surprising palette of plaster pink, acid greens, turquoise and a surprising tomato red encourage the viewer to look again. Layers of paint create dense, opaque sections fringed by loose and translucent washes of colour – light and dark, liquid and solid. There is a sense that Scott’s surfaces are constantly shifting in her hand.’
