Kate Sherman


Kate Sherman's paintings originate from photographs. This photographic source is important because the paintings capture a reflective notion of memory, of the emotional distance between a real landscape and a photograph, between experience and longing. It is a poignant and quiet melancholy reminiscent of the artist Edward Hopper, that is expressed both by the portrayal of sparse unpopulated landscapes containing elemental traces of man, and by her restrained palette.


Originally from the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, Kate now lives and works in Sussex. In 2015 & 2018 Kate’s work was selected for Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Kate completed a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art at Birmingham University.
