Biography

Kate Terry’s practice encompasses sculpture, installation and drawing. Terry’s work explores architectural space, geometry, balance, and colour, employing utilitarian materials with economy and restraint.

Working with site-specific thread installations, she draws from the rigorous regularity of Minimalism, and the basic tenets of symmographic craft constructions, her works explore the interplay of the hand crafted in relation to repetitious and serial forms and gestures.

Her sculptures; using painted wood, steel, coloured acrylic and brass; consider concerns of weight and presence with direct emphasis on their physicality, with often balanced, open geometric shapes. Her planimetric drawings are based upon architectural spaces as proposals for installations and ‘plans for’ impossible works within real space.

Terry’s work is exhibited regularly in the UK and internationally. She has had recent solo exhibitions at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, USA; Broadway Gallery, Letchworth; Volker Diehl Cube, Berlin; and Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar, and recent exhibitions in Paris, Berlin, and Vienna. She co-curated ‘New Relics’ with colleague Tim Ellis, a large survey Sculpture exhibition in London in 2018.
