Chance and play are integral to Kathleen’s working practice and are used as a means of dislocating the every day in pursuit of the marvelous. The challenge then, once a glimpse of it is caught, is for her to draw it out and make it visible. Each work is a voyage of discovery. The thrill of the unpredictable is the matrix of the journey.
Kathleen was born in South Africa. Her work is informed by African and Classical mythology, surrealism and her readings in prehistory.
