Professor Penny Florence observed me making my clearseeing drawings at Espacio Gallery – here she writes …”Kate Walters’ fascinating new departure, which she brilliantly calls “becoming the hollow bone”, takes audience participation to a new level. Showcased in the Summer in Hoxton, and most recently at the Espacio in London, participants are brought into the making of the work. The artist sits with her subject in the gallery (or indeed, anywhere) and “channels” them to create a unique monotype, which the person can take away with them.

This is much deeper than setting work up to which people can respond in various ways. Yet – and this is the real master stroke – though the “audience” is brought right into the making of the work, the artist remains in the key rôle. This is no dilution of the artist, but rather a true sharing of her talent. Gallery, visitor, artist, artwork: they are all changed. I felt privileged and moved to witness it.”


Here is  a link to a feature on the Falmouth University website describing the process of working with Marc…  and I’ll be at the Dark Sound conference at Falmouth University presenting a paper on my work around generative absence and the way I worked to produce the images for Marc’s album…
