KATE SYMMANS 
(b. 1988, Wellington, New Zealand)
Bachelor of Media Arts (Honours), Waikato Institute of Technology, 2012

From Wellington, Kate Symmans originally painted suburban settings, interested in the connections we have to a place and our sense of ‘home’. Kate’s most recent work is focussed around themes of locality and whereabouts, playing with how a viewer distinguishes a place based off the amount of information supplied.

Currently based in Waikato, Kate visits locations to sketch and form a connection with the environment, before painting a series of work. Kate explores the light, colours and shapes that could be included or withheld to represent the features of a location; giving the viewer the opportunity to find a place, real or imagined, within her work.
