KatherineSheers's picture


Katherine Sheers’s artwork arises from experiences which are at once both monumental and intimate. For her, the act of making art is an extemporary and visceral one. In order to access a degree of physical empathy in her work, Sheers often employs sensory processes and rituals in her practice. Movement, touch, scent, music, discomfort and arousal are all utilised as an integral part of creating new work.

Trained at Chelsea College of Art, Sheers originally worked internationally as a lingerie designer. Arising from this background, femininity and feminism are themes which often occur throughout her drawings and paintings. And while she has recently broadened her enquiry to encompass the body and motherhood, the duality of the monumental and intimate, always form the foundation of her artwork.
