AboutFootfall Art is delighted to present Katie Buckett.
** 26/09 SLAM Fridays - visit the windows on the trail!**
Through surreal and wonderful subject relationships, Katie explores ways to ignite imagination. Several works are from a series called Metamorphosis, depicting characters with animal and human features. These pieces invite the viewer to see the animalistic sides of humans, and question what we think we know about animal consciousness.
Katie Buckett is from Brooklyn, New York and has been working as a full time artist in London for the last three years. She studied BA Fine Art at Pratt Institute, specialising in hyper-real, figurative painting. In New York she participated in many group shows and became integral to the Bushwick Arts and Music scene. Katie helped to spawn an artistic community by starting her own art collective called Hospitium. A musician, too, she created an open mic called Potion, which she carried over sea and called Cable Street Electric.
In 2013 Katie had her first solo exhibition Metamorphosis at the Brick Lane Gallery, London, and has recently been selected by Lacey Contemporary for representation. Katie continues to work a very productive studio practice, and regularly takes commissions. She is already planning two new series of portraits and surrealist scenes with people and animals.
