Kate Gorman

Kate Gorman is an artist living in the regional city of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.

Kate primarily focuses on sculpture, with the physical act of making at the forefront of
her practice. Traditional sculptural techniques such as bronze casting and carving
are used to convey a sense of whimsy that provokes reflection. Through drawing
narratives from personal experience, Kate explores constraints and concerns rooted
in contemporary society, such as anxiety for the environment, the undertow of
motherhood and prevailing social expectations.

Most recently her work has explored our relationship with the natural environment.
The Homo-empathicus series explored  a sense of reflection, release, or containment.
Created during the 2020/21 lockdown periods these works reflect both psychological
states caused by both ‘solastalgia’ and the physical impact of isolation.

Gorman will be showing at M Contemporary in our secondary internal exhibition space – M2  – opening Saturday November 26th.
