Kate Evans’s work uses delicate drawings and watercolour washes with large areas of negative space. This produces compositions that reflect the richness of the subject matter. Her work creates a feeling of isolation and space, which depicts the sheer wilderness of these locations.
Kate works in mixed media; using a combination of watercolour and pencil. This allows the freedom to produce different effects, playing with the transparency of the medium creating deep and layered imagery.
About her work Anna says:
‘My work explores the margins of landscape.
I work in oil paints on paper pasted onto board, drawing into the wet paint with pencil. This technique results in a deconstructed, sketch-like finished work; the smooth surface, fragility and fluidity of the mark making on paper echoing the temporary and peripheral nature of the places I paint.’
