Lost in Thought
By Kate Boucher
Kate Boucher’s work is created in response to landscapes that are in some way, transitional. These landscapes are recorded in the liminal states of twilight and daybreak, where the separation seems thinner between the real, the sensed and the remembered.
Kate responds to these landscapes through a drawing and making practice, exploring this tension between the sensed and the known. She records her complex responses to landscape through intense study, habitual practices and serial working.
She immerses herself in her chosen landscapes, inhabits them, travels through them, on repeated and habitual routes. To record these complex responses, limited materials and a set of procedures are created by her for each site. The lists outline processes for serial working, recording responses to place, through sketchbooks, photography, drawing and assemblage.
These visual responses, are created in partnership with each other as keepsakes. Each piece in the series attempting to better express or expose the underlying reason why, whilst lost in thought and immersed in the landscape, Kate’s attentions or emotions might have been drawn to one thing over another.
Kate studied at Chelsea School of Art in the early 1990s. She graduated from West Dean College with a Master of Fine Art (Distinction) in 2016. She was awarded a prestigious QEST Scholarship in 2015 and was the Edward James Scholar in 2016. Her work has been exhibited with that of David Nash RA and Tai Shan Schierenberg and is held in the collection of The Edward James Foundation, alongside works by Leanora Carrington, Salvador Dali and René Magritte.
