Plants burst forth: the humming colours and sculptural interventions of Kate Bright’s recent paintings, ceramics, and bronzes are an antidote to the cold winter months.
Van Gogh House presents a body of work by contemporary British artist Kate Bright, with several pieces created specifically in response to 87 Hackford Road.
The house also hosted talk given by Bright, where she spoke about the exhibition and her practice: ‘…painting the planet, agoraphobia in Australia, studio superstitions; looking out through these eyes and how blue goes at the top and green at the bottom’.
Bright studied at Camberwell School of Art and Goldsmiths, and is currently Associate Professor at the Slade School of Fine Art UCL. She has had solo exhibitions at the Centro Internacional de Arte de Salamanca, Spain; The New Art Gallery Walsall, UK; Vitamin Contemporary Art, Turin, Italy; and the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle, UK.
