Oil on panel
Kate Sherman’s landscape paintings, like this series of birch tree paintings, have a delicate impasto surface and brisk brush marks which belie their intricate structure – where compositions of skylines, horizon lines and road lines are sensitively balanced by fence posts, signposts or trees.
The paintings, all oil on board, originate from photographs she has taken of her surrounding landscape. 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 that is expressed both by the portrayal of sparse unpopulated landscapes containing elemental traces of man and by her restrained palette which is often suffused in a reserved northern European light of chalky blues and pink-blushed greys.
Originally from the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, Kate now lives and works in Sussex. Kate completed a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art at Birmingham University.
In 2015 & 2018 Kate exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition
