Kate Scoones

about

Kate creates paintings and drawings as well cut paper collages and constructions, merging fantasy and images of nature with scenes of domestic weariness and banality. Photography is a means for collecting source images and working out compositional ideas. Writing creative short fiction and poetry are also part of her practice. Kate participates in group and solo exhibitions. Her work is in public and private collections in Canada, the US, Denmark and South Korea.
