Says Kate of her 2022 exhibition Soft Landing: “My experience of the past few years, isolated from my family and especially my son, thousands of kilometres away yet immediately accessible through a camera, has amplified my feelings of disconnection with a veil, filtering the information and nuance of my interactions with them.
Many of these pieces are portraits, screen-grabbed and deconstructed then reassembled as glitched topography glimpsed briefly through windows and apertures, screens and cameras, some muted and obscured some crisp but textured.
I’ve long been interested in what would normally be rejected as imperfect or imprecise, to instead be embraced and included. Graphic motifs extracted from drawings of bodies and machines are repeated and layered, codes that tie us together.”
