Structure of landscapes and the components within these spaces form the core of Kathryn Moore’s subjects. Her unique artwork evokes a sense of ‘mass’ and volume through colour, pattern and line. Referencing directly her sketchbooks and maps whilst exploring the terrain, Kathryn is able to capture and retain a freshness and energy in her paintings. Subtle uses of materials found on location may be included in the images in the form of rubbings of leaves and rock surfaces to create pattern and a sense of place. Architectural aspects are also of interest and these clearly reflect her ability to portray ‘light’ in subjects.
Kathryn studied in Fine Art at Weston Super Mare and Bristol, specialising in painting and has worked and travelled extensively abroad. She moved to East Anglia in 1992, where she collaborated with artists to form the Peterborough Artists Open Studios and View 5, as well as having solo shows in Northamptonshire. Kathryn taught art in Further Education for 15 years before moving to Herefordshire in 2019. She has always had an interest in textiles, rural crafts and natural history, as well as being an accomplished violinist and violist.
