Statement

Kate Murdoch’s work reflects the continual transformation of nature with an emphasis on fluidity
and change.

Her artistic motivations are more spiritual than social. The paintings
are places in which the eye can simultaneously be challenged and also find rest among the layers of organic shapes. The abstract nature of the work allows the viewer to interpret
each piece in their own way. Different visual meanings can be discovered depending on the imagination of the individual.

 Her current work has developed into montages based on photographs taken of tropical foliage. The compositions are made up of different elements from these photographs. Although a small study is the basis of each work the paintings tend to develop in ways that are quite removed from the original concept. In this way she allows each work to reveal itself through her subconscious. It is this unpredictability that gives her momentum in her creative process.
