Kate Teale, Alternate Space Wall Drawings, 2020, Graphite on wall.

Kate Teale’s work is based in observation of familiar things, (windows, beds, furniture..) emptied to a point of near abstraction. In the studio there will be wall drawings, paintings, large-scale prints and other drawings.

The paintings are made in layers of pure primary colors, with the brightness of the canvas’s surface shining through as light. The nature of home is a recurring subject, particularly in relation to its’ opposite, being “un-homed” by natural or man-made disaster.

Kate Teale was born in Hampshire, England. She received her MA from Oxford University, England; her Art Diploma from City and Guilds of London Art School, and her MFA from Hunter College, C.U.N.Y.

In 2013 Kate received a Joan Mitchell Foundation artist development grant, and a NYFA Fellowship in Painting in 2008. She shows at Studio10, Bushwick and has both written on art and curated exhibitions, mainly at her very part-time gallery, Big & Small/Casual.
