Trippy Landscapes by Kate Shaw.

Ultra-chromatic & otherworldly, Kate Shaw‘s works are like visions from wildly beautiful hallucinations.  Shaw’s statement regarding the conceptual intent of her work is also quite radical – (and I quote from her site) :

“I am concurrently exploring the sublime in nature whilst imbuing a sense of toxicity and artificiality in this depiction. The intention is to reflect upon the contradiction between our inherent connection to the natural world and continual distancing from it”

Creating her own specialized technique of collage-ish construction & layering of mountain ranges and natural scenes, Kate pours concoctions of acrylic paints and various other inks/pigments- allowing them to organically swirl and marble.   Shaw then selects forms and areas of the chanced textures, cuts them out and assembles scenes loosely based on real life natural landscapes.  Also, check some of the video work that Kate has done below the gallery.
