Kays improvisational approach to creating artwork is characterised through the process of screen printing.
‘I am an artist when I approach the screen, my intention is not to create limited editions of one image but to create individual works of art’.
The sketchbook is a way of recording my curiosity of the world and how people move in and out of my visual landscape.
The screen prints are a response to this and often include correction lines, marks and various line qualities. At times they are fast and furious and at other times slow-paced and rhythmic. It all depends on the people, their movements, characteristics and relationship to their surroundings.
Most recently Kay’s new work has developed into a series of images in response to visual dialogues developed through zoom meetings.
Kay’s Zoom Portraits have recently been exhibited at The Amsterdam Museum and Art Gallery as part of the exhibition Corona in the City. Her portraits will form part of the Grafisch Atelier Exhibition Zine Volume #3.
