Kate Roebuck is a multimedia artist whose work is best described as witty, unconventional, and rhythmic, chasing the elusive balance of playfulness and precision. Influenced by her background in textile design, artist Kate Roebuck finds inspiration in form, pattern, color, and texture. Distilling various botanical forms into simplified shapes, Kate’s ink drawings have a playful, pictographic tone. Her linework contains an organic fluctuation, offering a mischievous interplay between the handmade and the naturally occurring. Exploring these classical themes, she seeks to create open-ended visual dialogue and to shed light on the ever-evolving relationship of the creator and the created. Drawing from nature and everyday life, Kate’s work is both bold and quirky, an interpretation undoubtedly all her own.
