About Kate Proudman
After starting her professional life as an architect, Kate Proudman graduated in Fine Art from the Cass School of Art in 2011. Her work encompasses installation, painting and sound, together with collaborative performance.
Together with two Cass alumni she co-founded artist-run gallery One Paved Court in 2017, to bring to West London some of the less commercial and more challenging art regularly enjoyed in East London.
Kate likes to involve people in the making of her work –she has worked with staff in the education and archive departments at Whitechapel Gallery, with the ferryman at Ham, a group of teenage girls, and the shopkeepers of Brick Lane. Her paintings are often produced from texts given by individuals describing a space of personal significance unknown to the artist.
In her work, Kate is interested in exploring relationships. She is interested in creating links – for example between the Cass School of Art and the Whitechapel Gallery, and between Ham House and Marble Hill House.
