Kate Corbett-Winder's art is rooted in the borderland of the Welsh Marches. It's a place with ancient qualities, deeply rural and full of the curves and forces of nature. The paintings she makes in her studio there have a sense of place that is almost devotional. The level of feeling she has for this land is evident in the fervent palette and brave structures of composition, reflecting the artist's knowledge of British painting and the story of abstracted landscape.
More engaging than this though, is the fact that she has country in her heart, and clearly responds to the rhythms and tunes of nature, using colours and forms not just to represent a seen landscape, but something felt as well. So that the breezes and the whispers of the Marches are somehow there on the gallery wall.
Kate Corbett-Winder comes to Jonathan Clark Fine Art in July 2016 with a history of previous exhibitions at such galleries as Sladmore Contemporary and Crane Kalman. The works on show at Park Walk explore her last three years of work and range in price from £800 to £3,850.
