Artist Spotlight XI | Kathleen Hope

March 9, 2021

My first love of art was ceramics. Though I never envisioned
myself as a potter and chose to be a painter, concrete has
always intrigued me. With characteristics similar to fired clay,
I use it in a painterly way. Preparing my own mixes, I
combine cement with plaster and dried pigments giving my
completed works a sculptural dimension. The porous surface
also allows me to create unusual markings.
