Kate Mary

Kate Mary lives and works in Glasgow. She studied interior design at Glasgow School of Art.
What inspires your work as an artist? Interiors and architecture are my main source of inspiration. I’m led by all the places or spaces I visit, whether while travelling or during more everyday moments such as a nice coffee or a walk in the park. I carry a wee journal with me and note down observations from places; little sensory interests descriptions of patterns or half heard conversations for example. All these elements find their way back into my paintings, and I see the final pieces as a kind of distillation and re-imagination of these experiences.
Who are your biggest influences? David Hockney, Georges Perec, Henri Matisse, Gaston Bachelard, Betty Woodman. Incredible colour and incredible writing, the two things that inform my work the most.
What does your work mean to you? My work almost serves as a memory to me, as it can transport me back to a very specific place and help me remember fine details. The way something smelt for example is recalled through colour, or mark making. For people viewing my work, I want it to be fun, uplifting and bring joy. I want them to add their own memories and imagine their own experiences through my fond remembrance and retelling.
What techniques do you use? It all starts from the journalling. From those notes comes pattern and colour, the most important elements for me and I find the compositions then come together on their own. I work mainly with acrylic and oil pastel on paper or stretched canvas.
