Kate Hammersley

Artist

Kate Hammersley MRBS is an artist and sculptor creating work about landscape and change.  Her practice considers what it is like to live in a world that is in a state of flux.  Transient moments such as a lightning strike and events over a longer duration such as animal migration or changes to mountain topography are the inspiration behind her drawings, sculpture and installations.  Using the environment as her starting point, she gathers material from the surrounding landscape, frequently creating work in three and a half dimensions.  The process of making and the choice of material are an important part of her work.

Since 2002 she has been creating an on-going worldwide series of temporary text installations which feature text cut out of local newspapers. The interventions are photographed in situ with the photograph acting as a lasting document of the transitory action.
