Kate Hunt

Abstract or highly abstracted, Kate Hunt’s works appear to allude to memory, or the creative act of uncovering it. In her painterly processes –layers of translucent paint, rubbed and scratched – she echoes the searching processes of cognition. Her 2009 exhibition Uncover was described as ‘connecting work… brave in its intimacy’, by Alice McConnachie, who wrote about her show: ‘it yearns to find the fragile materiality of the past and to join this with the honesty and visibility of the creative process.’ Having studied at St. Martin’s, Byam Shaw, Sir John Cass and Wimbledon Art Schools, she has exhibited with the Royal Academy, the Royal College of Art, the Gallery of Modern Art and Cadogan Contemporary in London, as well as in various national and European galleries and Institutions.
