Own Art

Kate Boxer

Kate Boxer was born in Sussex in 1961. In the early 1990s she took classes in London art schools and has exhibited in galleries and at art fairs since 1994.

Kate Boxer is an artist of vitality, kindness and wit. She sees animals and humans in a quirky whimsical and highly individual way and there is an engaging eccentricity to much of her work which makes one laugh out loud. Kate is a skilled print maker as well as an accomplished artist, with her sure sense of line and unusual colour. She often adds her own personal jokes into the titles of her work, indicative of her free spirit and original take on life.

The film maker Bruno Wollheim has written about her work and her ‘idiosyncratic and deeply felt’ subject matter. He points out how in her cowboy prints, ‘Howard Hawks meets high camp, High Sierra and Frank O’Hara. High fun meets high seriousness.’

Discussing her animal images in paint and print, Wollheim notes their ‘engaging eccentricity’ that comes ‘from a fierce understanding of their innate spirit. The snake, bison, or sand-bird are above all themselves, they express their own independence and individuality, with all the implicit comic tragedy... they are free.’

As George Melly once described Kate Boxer, she is ‘a remarkable creative spirit: her images and the means to realise them are at one.’
