1. A gap or interruption in space, time, or continuity; a break

Antlers Gallery is proud to present Hiatus – an exhibition of new work by Bristol based artist Kate Evans from 7 February – 1 March 2014. With this latest exhibition Kate focuses on the inherent need to find space; both physically and mentally.

Uninhabited panoramic vistas and isolated cabins are set against large areas of negative space that form quite literal metaphors, echoing this yearning for freedom.

The process of mark-making and experimentation with colour are important elements in the artist’s practice. Kate works in mixed media using a combination of watercolour, pencil and sometimes oil.

Although her paintings are portrayals of landscapes – inspired by trips to Scandinavia, America and Europe – her intricacy of technique and use of space mean that they transcend mere representation. Alluding to the idea of a place rather than being specific in relation to geography or time.

Playing on the insubstantiality of the medium, combined with the scale and delicacy of her pieces, Kate creates locations that are rich and inviting, yet simultaneously intangible and ephemeral.

Jack Gibbon, Antlers Director says…

Kate Evans is one of the most exciting artists working in Bristol today. Her clean, minimal use of paint and cleverness of composition says as much in what it omits as in what is there. This is a really great new body of work and the whole team are thrilled to be involved in the progress of this up and coming emerging artist.
