Kate Beaugié’s contemporary portfolio:



This blog / online journal is a place for me to exhibit work in progress, as well as a reflective tool for my own critical awareness of my practice.

Comments and feedback are welcomed and encouraged.

In my artistic development, I am interested in conveying the miracle and intrigue of natural phenomena by developing my use of medium and composition, integrating an awareness of spacial and sculptural concerns in the 2D work.

My work can be sited within phenomenological sculpture /photography and is influenced by Japanese aesthetics and Minimalism.

I describe myself as a light sculptor, as my inspiration is found in my human relationship to light and dark.

One Response to “about”

  1. JD Haigh said

    Kate, This is a beautiful ‘blogg’ and show off your work very well. I particularly like to scroll-down format because it reminds me of a piece of film.

    It’s hard to sum up my response to your work but I do find it to be about an inner experience of the world, despite it being driven or motivated by the external elements of light and air.

    Hope to catch-up with you soon at the UCA xx Jane
