Kate McLeod is a sculptor based in Belgium and the UK, working mainly with clay creating temporary figurative sculptures and installations.
My practice is underpinned by the notion of ‘becoming other’. The work is visceral; an expressive pursuit concerned with materiality within a figurative sculptural practice. I use archetypal materials such as clay and plaster to work into figures and these materials are propped up by off-cuts and junk. The work is un-monumental but yet clearly references a monumental classical sculptural tradition.
Born in Birmingham in 1982. Studied Fine Art and Art History at Goldsmiths College. Then worked for the sculptor Anthony Caro for 3 years before studying Fine Art Sculpture at the Slade, UCL. I currently work in Belgium.
