Kate Shaw creates collages of poured paint to explore notions of transformation and re-invention within the context of the natural environment and the language of painting. During the residency at Flux Factory and with the support of RU she will be working with video to consider the time-based possibilities of painting to mimic flux and change. She will also be delving into the environment of New York to consider how ‘nature’ intervenes in an urban context, and with the assistance of RU create collaborative installation work exploring this idea.
