Creatures, great and small, are the focus of Kate Leiper’s immaculate mixed media works in ink and pastel on a variety of papers.
Using mythology, legend, poetry and ballad as her cue, Kate Leiper frequently casts the feathered or furry in character role. Sometimes at rest, in sleep or musing, these images convey a peace and certain contentment. Other times alert and bright of eye, ready…..
Kate Leiper graduated in Aberdeen (BA Hons – Fine Art) in 1996, since then exhibiting her work in London and throughout Scotland, gaining a loyal and enthusiastic following. The works she creates have a style all of their own, instantly recognisable, highly desirable.
During travels in Canada (1997) the artist became involved in theatre set design and painting. The influence of this is evident in the extensive colour palette, design element and ‘staging’ of her work; rich materials and pattern frequently form the backdrop for the characters observed.
During 2014 through to July of 2015, Kate will be creating a new collection of some sixteen paintings ‘A Pageant of Tudor Birds & Beasts’ which will be exhibited at Blickling Hall (National Trust) from late August through September & October ’15.
