Three Abstract Artists create timeless pieces that explore memory, transcendence and absence as presence. Their individual processes involve layering and excavation and are amplified by the Regency Town House, undergoing gentle restoration.
The title, ‘A House Safe for Tigers’ is adopted from the 1975 soundtrack by Lee Hazlewood and conjures a vivid dissonance between the domestic and the wild, the magical and the mundane.
This couple came to see my work in a gallery last year, they had been following my work and seen a couple of my paintings in a friends home and were so appreciative, and resonated with a lot of my work, but they couldn’t find, or decide on ‘the one’ at that time – I remember saying, ‘Maybe I just haven’t painted it yet’, and this was right.
￼I knew, or had an inkling, as this painting emerged, that it may well be the one they decided to have.
It looks fantastic in their totally chic home. Which is a mixture of sleek contemporary lines, with amazing vintage finds and a very specific clear colour palette try that works with this pretty bold and raw painting –
I am still resting and processing the amazing madness of May – the month that is the most intense for artists in Brighton and Hove Uk.
It sometimes feels like a crazy helter-skelter of deadlines, followed by quietness but mostly I am so proud and happy from all the plans that came to fruition, the connections made and the new friends collectors supporters who flowed towards me, and the amazing artists I exhibited with – and the capacity for open minded appreciation of the Humans who made the effort to visit us in three different venues.
And the people who have come since to the studio to see the work; something I really enjoy – contact me email@example.com to arrange a visit
Couldn’t resist posting this I’ve been updating my website and saw it in my photographs of interiors – owned by a lovely collector who normally chooses much larger pieces – nestling in their study – Sussex Uk ￼
I have had a very stressful 10 days working on regaining my Instagram account which has been hacked, it’s very difficult to explain how hard it is to know that unauthorised content is being posted, and private messages sent from someone who is not me – Please accept my apologies for any strange DM’s you may have received in this period – I am working on it, in the meantime you can visit @five_at_no1_rigden_road to https://www.instagram.com/p/CahZ-FJISse/?utm_medium=copy_link see what will be coming up in the pop up I am hosting this year – one weekend in May 20th-22nd – very exciting !!!
Here I am standing outside @gallery40 central Brighton, UK, in October 2021. We were about half way through a happy week during the exhibition ‘Elemental’ with the sculptor Jo Delafons.
This shows the easy bit, when you’ve done all the admin, emailing, label printing, hanging, curating , preview planning and you just have to turn up and receive all the lovely visitors and friends and patrons – which makes it all worth while; the connecting is incredible and grateful making.
So I am at the very early stages of planning for this years shows – so far three collaborations two with @artistsopenhouses during Brighton Festival in May , and one later in the year in Storrington, Sussex.
I will be posting as I make progress mainly on my Instagram page @kate_scott_paintings and doing my best to make time for my own practice in the studio while loving the creative process of working with other artists to bring an exhibition together
Let me know if you would like to be invited to the shows when we are ready to send out invites
