We are proud to work with | Kate Mcleod
 

We are proud to work with local artist Kate McLeod

Following her graduation in 2005 from Canterbury University (BA, Art History and Sociology), Kate’s life twisted and turned, with jobs as a TV set designer, art teacher, advertising account manager, creative software executive and restoration project manager giving her licence to explore a wide range of creative disciplines.

 

Along the way, Melbourne, Auckland, Ankara, London, San Francisco and Sydney have all been called home. Kate came full circle five years ago, putting down roots in her home town of Ōtautahi, Christchurch, and set about creating the studio and environment to support her career as a full-time artist.

 

The desire to mould and sculpt raw materials into something new started early. As a baby she took the only malleable, viscous substance she could get her hands on and painted her cot. Today she creates large scale paintings in oil and acrylic and makes assemblage from recycled found items. Copper and gold foil also feature heavily in her work along with other mixed media, nothing is out of bounds.

 

Kate’s current gestural, lyrical abstraction focuses on being attuned to the rhythms of life. Her work is imbued with a sense of immediate, fluid movement that invites an emotional response from her audience. Grounded by her deep fascination with colour, each work is a performance that captures a fleeting moment, a memory of a feeling.

 

Kate is on a mission to move one human at a time: “I hope you feel the physical performative energy of my movement as if you were there the moment it was created”.

Title: Campbell’s Soup, Vegetable 
Artist: Andy Warhol
Size: 40 x 50cm 
Type: Limited edition lithograph
4.png

When asked why he chose to paint Campbell’s soup cans, Warhol offered a deadpan reply: “I used to have the same lunch every day, for twenty years, I guess, the same thing over and over again.”

 

That daily meal is the subject of this work consisting of thirty-two canvases—one for each of the flavours then sold by Campbell’s—using a combination of projection, tracing, painting, and stamping.

Title: Marilyn SOLD
Artist: Andy Warhol
Size:  90 x 90 cm
Type: Print 1803/2400, authenticated with the CMOA stamp on reverse
4.png

Soon after her tragic death in 1962, Warhol made a series of paintings paying tribute to Marilyn Monroe, the actress, model, and singer who had captured America’s imagination in films like Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire. Warhol based this portrait on a publicity still from the 1953 film Niagara.

 

About repetitions Warhol said, “The more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away, and the better and emptier you feel."

Piece no.202079
Title: Flowers
Artist: Andy Warhol
Size:  90 x 90 cm
Type: signed print, authenticated with the CMOA stamp on reverse

Warhol has said, “My fascination with letting images repeat and repeat— or in film’s case, “run on”– manifests my belief that we spend much of our lives seeing without observing.”

 

Though an interesting statement from an artist who did not observe directly from nature but from photographs, this series causes us to reconsider the universal appeal of flowers each spring.
