EARTH SUN SKY EXHIBITION

Kate’s work is interested in layers and reflections. Using paint, she captures moments when land, sky and water collide. She is fascinated with how each element impacts the other – and the colours, patterns and shapes that are created when they are combined. Often found taking photos of seemingly random and ordinary things such as leaves, puddles or clouds Kate later transforms these objects into colour saturated canvases. Since living and working in the French Alps, she has also become fascinated with the relationships between cloud and land.

Where do the boundaries between these most basic of elements of nature lie?  The watery, ethereal world of Kate Robotham’s paintings invite us to become more curious about the natural environments which surround our everyday lives.

Kate grew up in Peterborough and now lives and works as an artist in Loughborough in the East Midlands. She studied Fine Art at Loughborough University, and since graduating in 2013 has exhibited at The Pedestrian Gallery Leicester, Surface Gallery Nottingham, The Old Truman Breweries London, and further afield, including Belgium and China. Her work is also in several private collections.

Josh Richardson is an East Midlands based artist with his studio base in Lincoln.  Josh studied at the University of Lincoln and works closely with land.  He is strongly influenced by form and the environment.
