Pre-festival sneak peek

Diving into the world of video to experiment with this medium as another means of bringing my work to you.

During a recent photo shoot with local photographer Lance Bellers, with Emmet Ray’s “I’ll See You in My Dreams” playing in the background, we became aware whilst flicking through the gallery on his camera that the images took on a sparkly, jewel-like quality. Aside from being a great way of showing many images in a short space of time, the flickering effect of the fast-paced slideshow seemed to temporarily transport us from that sunny room into a different dimension. Through its connection to the images, the music worked without pretension, hitting just the right rhythm and mood, and prompting jokes that we had stumbled upon a new art form.

As my preparations for this year’s festival draw to a close, and with only days left until I begin the process of hanging my paintings at 2 Knoyle Road, I bring you this sneak peek of my 2017 collection. In addition to the original acrylics on canvas, my range of cards will also be available at the Open House for the duration of the festival.

You can expect more media experimentation in the months to come, but for now please enjoy this first attempt, and I look forward to seeing many of you during at Knoyle Road.

 

 

 

Shortlisted for Hastings contemporary Open Exhibition 2020

I am so so pleased and proud that these two paintings, ‘In the Gloaming – Malmesbury’ and ‘Upwards -Lilting’ have been shortlisted to top 400 out of 1500 entry’s, especially since I started my Art journey at Hastings Technical College fantastic foundation course which was the most inspiring period of my young life leading up to that time and taught me to tune in to what was true and personal to me in my work going forward- Thankyou particularly to Rod Harman, amazing tutor who prepared us well #inspirational-teachers#katescottpaintings

‘Smokescreen’ – acrylic on canvas 20×20 cm

New little painting, pretty sure it’s finished, ‘Smokescreen’ – acrylic on canvas, will be framed for part of exhibition at @artat21 open house this year, part of @artistsopenhouses May 2020!! Looking forward to it, it’s taken a while to get back in to some painting after the Christmas shenanigans, I am liking how the chirpy rich turquoise is encroaching on the rather solemn glossy deep olive –

Looking forward to what else will unfold in my work this shiny new year

little upgrade of ‘Electric Blue Field’ / sharpened up a teeny bit and connected the big blue areas and made it feel more in keeping with more recent work, managed to restrain myself from completely changing it – nice size for framing #acrylic on canvas #blues #abstractpainting
