Kathy O'Leary















Artists' statement


Kathy is a multidisciplinary visual artist. Her studio-based work reflects how she collects and collates imagery.

She examines form, line and colour, which become abstract, often sculptural layers.

This helps her to conceptualize the idea in a way that reflects the layers of changing culture, society, history, geology and politics.

Employing the abstract space to create a pliable structure for intuition, improvisation and chance.

These have become her methods for navigating the blurry terrain of memory and imagination.


Kathy traces and retracing paths, mapping serves as a metaphor for searching, an implication of the unknown in wide, open spaces, and a trace of how we see where we've been.
