Kate Daw

Kate Daw’s practice explores issues of authorship, narrative and creative process, and continually moves between the spheres of domesticity and the workplace, the everyday and the imagined. Her work engages personal memory, nostalgic recollection and feminised cultural experience and she spans these subjective and emotional registers through a range of media including painting, sculpture and text. Daw’s signature typewritten text paintings draw on a variety of literary sources: some are fragments of her own previous texts, others are written by friends or particular canonical authors from the mid-20th century – writers such as Proust, Capote – whose own observations of time and place resonate with Daw. Her recent paintings are also richly evocative of both personal memory and cultural experience; some refer to cherished possessions while others sample well-known Modernist designs. Across her practice, she is interested in both the aesthetic and the evocative, but also in how women’s experiences in culture might be marginalised or make themselves present.
