DegreeArt.com Presents Kate Marshall’s 2008 Solo Show
at the Empire Gallery, London
Raunch culture and feminist icons collide in Kate Marshall’s paint-sketches at her 2008 solo show Blue Stockings.
Kate Marshall returns to London after her 2007 solo debut was singled out as a must-see by the Sunday Times. Her signature figures in acrylic and charcoal “flirt between painting and drawing” and feature alongside work that shows a new bent for printmaking.
Bra-burning strip artists, suffragette jockeys and voyeuristic glances through the glass ceiling offer a “smutty, seaside postcard humour” take on feminism, femininity and the sexualized female image in popular culture. Her inspiration comes from images of women “culled from a glossy magazine, a fairy tale, historic art and literature, trash culture, ancient myth and coffee table erotica.”
