Kate Black


Kate Black is a North Yorkshire based collagist who creates imagery in response to objects and events. Social history, artefacts and artworks found in museum and gallery collections act as a catalyst for ideas. A diverse range of influences play a part in her work, including British Folk Art, textiles and children’s drawings.

The drawings exhibited as part of Definitions of Drawing II are from the Horses in Malton series, which explores the significance of the horse and the experience of racing horses in her local area.

Kate Black is an award winning artist originally from Walsall. She studied BA Fine Art at University of Wales, Cardiff and an MA Fine Art at University of Leeds. Kate has been selected for a number of group exhibitions including Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and The Derwent Art Prize. Recent solo exhibitions include, Water Birds at Myriad, London, The Misfortunes of Women, North Yorkshire and Down on the Farm at The Shop Floor Project, Ulverston.
