Kate Gritton

The landscape is full of silent narratives - visible features concealing untold stories - and every pathway, field or urban scene has a hidden undercurrent.

In my work, I try to evoke that sense of concealment, suggesting that what

lies beneath the final layer of paint may be key to those stories.

Often, I create a texture on the canvas, using collage, plaster or other materials,

so that the surface itself has its own history, before accepting the paint.  I use successive

layers of colour and thin glazes, sometimes hiding, sometimes revealing the ones beneath,

giving the painting new physical and emotional dimensions.
