Kate Street

Page 1 | Biography


My work often functions as a response to written and verbal communications. Words, phrases, taxonomies, puns or literature can act as a trigger. I am drawn to texts that speak of desire, attainment, consumption and loss. The results often interlace the deathly with the romantic, and attempt to create new hybrid forms that recall anatomical studies with strange botanical forms. My imagery is collaged together from a variety of sources - renaissance etchings, botanical studies, found imagery and more recently my own photography. This Frankenstein approach to materials and imagery stems from my interest in the human relationship with nature and our need to idealise it and appropriate it into a motif form. Many of my works have characteristics reminiscent of Baroque or Gothic styles, and are perhaps theatrical absurd, but it this absurdity that acknowledges the emptiness that accompanies desire and longing.
