Kate PHILLIPS -
Kate Phillips is a Scottish artist who currently lives in the Bay Area, California. She studied printmaking at the Glasgow School of Art and for the past nine years has worked in the encaustic medium. Her drawings and paintings are made using this ancient technique which is a layering of bees wax or resin and pigments fused together with a blowtorch. Phillips traps found images, old paper and thread between these layers to create intriguing, intimate works. These early works were purchased from the graduate exhibition Young Blood in 1994.
