My new website, Tower Hamlets show, link to video, Padua with engage summer school, supported by VASW.

Here is the link to the talk I gave at the Opening night at Newlyn Art Gallery : https://vimeo.com/73134126 (I think you’ll have to copy and paste)

My new website is up and running, apologies for few remaining typos!

Last week I went to the engage summer school in Padua. The focus was on leadership and resilience, and I gave a presentation on how I incorportate leadership and resilience in my day to day life as an artist. I am having problems up-loading images, so I will return once I have it sorted! You can see some images on my Facebook page.

Please contact me for an invitation for the show I am curating in Tower Hamlets – this blog is not allowing me to add new pages so I am having to add to old ones!

Guardian review, to save following the link….

Finding the review through the link is quite complicated so here it is!

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Kate Walters, Penzance at by Skye Sherwin, The Guardian, 1.12.2012.

It’s not every day you find an artist who claims their home is in the body of a deer. Kate Walters’s delightful paintings of floating animal and human hybrids work an unabashed mysticism, recalling Chagall’s folky dream world. Sketchbook works like a spread-eagled blue horse containing a multi-breasted woman are deliciously funny and weird. Walters, though, isn’t one for raising an ironic eyebrow at new ageism. This is about a good, old-fashioned return to nature. Her paintings brazenly fuse references to cave art and classical mythology with a rainbow-tinted hippy sensibility, but don’t shy away from darker and stranger imagery.

From the skin of the bird, the breast of the deer…..

my hand comes around to grasp, to hang on. Back in my studio it has been difficult to find my way. A head full of voices, all whispering different things… what am I doing? … is this any good?…..recent frenetic activity has left me confused, out of touch with the process in my studio. I think about floods, about ebbing and flowing, about little spheres which are cast off and which we might glimpse, or catch;  about feathers which are formed by the trace of a belly, and which might connect two people; about the birthing power of water, and of how we can float, or sink, or drift; about colour and how I long to return to its gloriousness.

Padua!

Just heard that Visual Arts South West are going to give me some funding towards my planned trip to Padua for the ‘engage’ Summer School. Really excited! Great news. I’ll be able to re-visit the Biennale too, and go to the Scrovegni chapel which I’ve wanted to visit for years.

Studio, working again

I think I might be making a series of works on a kind of baptism or initiation. Figures are standing in water. Or could it be about a new fuller immersion in etheric amniotic fluids, or maybe because I swam so much (and how I loved it!) in the warm salty Adriatic sea, and felt all the tears of the Earth?

work in progress, something to do with receptiveness, receiving through being in a certain state?
