Kate Sherman: COAST

22 June 201930 June 2019

Kate Sherman

Photography, childhood innocence and natural human curiosity are the subjects of an intriguing new series of oil paintings by Sussex artist Kate Sherman.

Sherman’s works depict the urban landscape along the Sussex coast and are made as if driving past in a car. They have a startling photo-realist quality that evokes childhood memories. Seeming slightly out of focus and capturing the unique bleached light of the region, these paintings have an uncomfortable voyeuristic quality.

“In these paintings I’m paying homage to my childhood. I grew up on the coast and I wanted in some way to recapture that sacred time of safety and innocence.” – Kate Sherman


Kate Sherman was selected by Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry as one of the highlights of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition last year. She is a rising star of the art scene with recent solo shows at Reuben Colley Fine Art, Birmingham and Rowe & Williams Gallery, Suffolk, as well as exhibiting at the Royal College of Art and Wells Art Contemporary. She lives and works in Ditchling.
