We are delighted to be the sole gallery in the UK currently showing Kate Banazi's work, which we are debuting at the forthcoming London Design Festival 24-27 September 2015.
Kate Banazi was born in London and studied at Central St Martins. She currently lives in Sydney, Australia. Kate has developed a strong following in recent years, with her abstract images and clever overprinting with colours to create beautiful Art prints.
Mainly self taught in the art of silk screen printing, Kate's work is experimental, intuitive and often playful, with bold colour and graphic elements a key reference. Science, space travel and the Quadrivium hold great interest and are often referenced in her work. Kate's experiments on perspex, paper and wood sees her explore the process of screenprinting and its outcomes. In a recent solo show in Melbourne entitled 'Currency' Kate's focus was with 'the virulent standards by which we judge ourselves (and those around us), Banazi looks to our constant pursuit of perfection and the price we pay for this unattainable goal'.
With this in mind for the show Kate refrained from retouching any of the silk screens, accepting the artworks in their unedited beauty. Celebrating blemishes, praising flaws and enjoying the unpredictable process of creating the work — an experience that was both challenging and liberating'
She has exhibited in group and solo shows Internationally and her work is commissioned by private, public and corporate clients.
